Find out the story behind chocolate truffles!

Chocolate truffles are one of the most wonderful confections we have to offer. They hare decadent sweets with a wide variety of flavors and designs. This makes them an excellent gift for your next birthday, anniversary, or house-warming event. When you give the gift of a box of truffles, you may consider telling them the story of their history. If you’ve never heard the story, then keep reading because we’re about to tell it!

Where did the chocolate truffle begin?

It all began in France, as many of the most refined culinary wonders. A French chef named Auguste Escoffier and his apprentice were working on making some cream puffs in the early 1920s. During their process, the apprentice accidentally poured the hot cream into chocolate pieces instead of where it was intended. This mistake created a chocolate ganache which is used in traditional chocolate truffles today. After creating this ganache, the apprentice rolled it into little balls, then into some cocoa powder. Thus, the chocolate truffle was born! This sweet treat has been in the hearts of chocolate lovers everywhere ever since. After all, what’s not to love? It’s soft, chocolatey goodness dusted with more chocolate!

What makes a chocolate truffle special?

There are a couple of things that make the chocolate truffle one of the best candies around. The ganache inside makes for a decadent and delicious bite, but the coatings can really make a difference. Our toasted coconut truffle is really something special. The sweetness of the coconut mixes with the dark chocolate center for a party of flavor. We also offer orange and raspberry truffles for those of you who like something a little different. If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, then we can hook you up with our milk or dark chocolate truffles. If you’re not totally sure what you’re looking for, you can get one of our variety packs so that you can get a little taste of everything. Check out our amazing selection of truffles right here!
