Dark Chocolate Truffles

Dusted with cocoa powder, the couverture protects a creamy, smooth whipped dark chocolate ganache.


A little history...

The chocolate truffle is a chocolate confection invented by Louis Dufour, a pastry chef from Chambéry, in France, in December 1895. While preparing his end of the year creations, this chocolatier realized he was missing some basic ingredients. Too proud to ask a colleague for them, he came up with a brilliant idea: he blended cream (crème fraîche), vanilla and cocoa powder. To make his invention more appealing, he dipped it into melted chocolate and coated it in cocoa powder. The chocolate truffle was born!

Tasting Rules

Our chocolates are best appreciated at a room temperature (from 55 to 65°F).

If you decide to keep your truffles refrigerated, please do not forget to take them out half an hour before the tasting.

Therefore you will best appreciate the smoothness and the delicate flavor of this plain truffle.

Recommendation from Nicolas Cloiseau, Master Chef of La Maison du Chocolat:
"The cocoa powder dusting on this truffle is matched brilliantly with an aged dark rum - a Saint James, for example."
