Excellent chocolate truffles from Cacao
|Most chocolate lovers can’t resist chocolate truffles, balls of ganache (chocolate mixed with heavy cream) that melt in your mouth.
Many chocolate truffles are pure chocolate-on-chocolate—ganache enrobed in cocoa or a hard chocolate shell. That’s fine for some people, but we need more excitement. Chocolatier Susan Pitkin has provided it.
She makes more than 20 flavors of truffles, from Coconut, Espresso and Lemon to newer flavors like Chili Pepper, Matcha, Saké and Sesame. And yes, there are classic Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate; and Peanut Butter truffles for Reese’s fans.
Many companies make truffles. The difference here is the quality of ingredients that makes the best ganache and a deft hand in flavoring it. We often find chocolate truffles boring, but we couldn’t stop eating these.
