Harris and Inglett say the inspiration for this collection is pure nostalgia, which is why they worked with Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie to create three limited-edition chocolates that promise to have you dreaming of sipping apple cider around a campfire, before digging into a slice of mom’s pumpkin pie.

Get ready to taste fall in a chocolate.
