May 2nd - National Chocolate Truffle Day

A chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts (typically hazelnuts, almonds or coconut), usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape.

Truffles were developed in France as a small chocolate ball made of ganache and rolled in cocoa. It was named after truffle fungus, that chocolates resembled. It is believed, that truffles were made by August Escoffier during the 1920s. One day his apprentice tried to make a pastry cream but accidentally poured hot cream into a bowl of chocolate chunks instead of the bowl of sugared egg. When chocolate and cream mixture hardened, Escoffier found, that he could form a lopsided ball with his hands. He rolled his creation in cocoa powder and was surprised with its resemblance to real truffles from France and Italy. The concept developed further and different fillings, as well as covers, were made.

We have 30 gorgeous Truffles available right now so enjoy one today!

Chocolate and Summer Heat

Did you know that good quality chocolate softens at 80 degrees and liquifies at 90 degrees? We do not use preservatives in our products so we need to be aware at all times where our product is going and the current temperatures. During the summer months we rarely ship our treats because the heat makes it nearly impossible to have our product arrive in the great condition it's shipped out in. Ice packs work to a small degree but they tend to melt too quickly. We don't want your thoughtful gift to arrive as a melted puddle in need of a spoon.
