If there’s one thing that will never make our “meh” list, it’s chocolate truffles, especially the ones so lovingly crafted at Godiva. Now, their renowned truffle-making artistry has leapt to new, irresistible heights.
At Godiva, “How can we make truffles even better?” is a mantra. How indeed?
Start with Ace of Cakes pastry czar, Duff Goldman and Godiva Executive Chef and chocolatier, Thierry Muret in the kitchen, whisk their ideas together until rich and creamy. Out comes Godiva’s first-ever special confection, The Cake Truffle Collection.
These inventions are pure genius: cake truffles without a trace of cake. That’s right. No cake.

The Ace of Cakes, Duff Goldman, culled his ultimate cake recipes and teamed them up with Godiva’s old-world chocolate-making techniques to create four specific cake “favorites,” using subtly flavored mousse, ganache, cream cheese and a variety of chocolates to reproduce the cake flavors.
The four cake truffles include:
The festive Birthday Cake Truffle, a pink-hued white chocolate shell filled with vanilla cake mousse and sprinkled with tiny nonpareils
The Cookie Dough Truffle, with classic cookie dough-flavored ganache in a milk chocolate shell
The Pineapple Hummingbird Cake Truffle, with summery hints of pineapple-banana ganache hidden in a white chocolate shell draped in cream cheese frosting; and
The Butterscotch-Walnut Truffle, a milk chocolate shell piped with dreamy butterscotch caramel and maple walnut cream, finished off with a touch of molasses “dust.”
The truffle treats are sold either individually or in collections of eight or twenty four pieces that include a vibrant, colorful keepsake box. The collection makes an ideal hostess gift or unexpected birthday surprise, wedding remembrance or anniversary delight.

The collection is certified kosher (dairy) by OU.
