An Original Delight: The Chocolate Truffle

Posted: Jan 22 2013

7a47874222e111e2ab5722000a1f9684_7“Chocolate.” This simple word can conjure a plethora of images. A solid scored bar of creamy milk chocolate, a pot of thick, glistening fondue with strawberries and bananas to dip, even a gooey warm chocolate brownie a la mode… All of these are defined by the signature taste of sweetened cacao: rich and flavorful. One of the most well known forms of chocolate, quite possibly the most elegant, decadent, and unique, is the chocolate truffle. Its history, flavors, and classifications all carry a richness with which this bon-bon is associated.

The chocolate truffle is named as such because it resembles the truffle mushroom. What they tend to look like are little balls of chocolate, often dusted with cocoa powder. By definition, they are little balls of chocolate ganache, which is a mixture of chocolate and heavy cream smoothly blended together. They are made at a temperature that allows the chocolate and cream to solidify and become a firm, creamy ball of chocolate. A mushroom truffle can go for $2000, and are coveted by chefs worldwide. A chocolate truffle is equally as sought after, with its creamy  and seductive texture combinations, as well as the intense chocolate flavor throughout each one.

These candies are famous for the intense chocolate experience they bring. When you eat one, the chocolate instantly begins to coat your mouth, smooth, creamy, and rich. Classic truffles never fail, but there are many that take exciting twists: coated in paprika or other powdered spices to add another dimension of flavor to the truffle. You can also experience a contrast of textures with creamy ganache and a coat of coconut shavings, crushed peppermint candy, or an assortment of nuts. No matter what, you can count on the chocolate truffle to deliver creamy, smooth flavor that will linger in your mouth. You can savor each rich second as you experience intense chocolate flavor, mellowed by the cocoa powder, strengthened by how the chocolate was tempered to be solid, but melt-in-your-mouth delicious. You can never go wrong with a decadent, smooth chocolate truffle.

    We have a few different writers for our blog, I’m sure with different takes on the writing process. I studied writing in college, and my only real advice is to hit the wall head on. If it takes ten minutes of staring at a blank screen before any words come out, then that’s what it takes.

    For a long time I tried to find ways to “ease” into the writing process, and I spent more time “easing” than writing. The best way for me is a brute force approach, no distractions, no setup, just writing. That’s just for me personally though.

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a
    tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
