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.
What a great weekend, and what a way to end it, with a great Christmas parade!
