Adventures in the Chocolate Shop

What is a truffle?

We often have customers ask, “What is a truffle?”  The simple answer is that it is a mixture of heavy cream and chocolate.  The cream and chocolate are heated and melted together to create a thick mixture called ganache.  Traditionally, the ganache is rolled into a spherical shape and then cover in cocoa powder or ground nuts; like hazelnuts, almonds or sometimes coconut.
