Our focus on local and organic ingredients creates the most tasty truffles. The "twist on traditional" confections are silky-smooth on the inside, with a thin crunchy chocolate shell on the outside. They are hand-dipped for an elegant, yet handmade look. We'll include a mix of our classic and seasonal flavors, to keep you excited. Our beautiful fair-trade boxes make a fun and eco-friendly gift, or a special treat for yourself.
Apples are one of our fall favorites, preferably a variety with a wild, semi-tart flavor and crisp bite. For this truffle, we chose the Senshu from Seedling Farms in Michigan, cooked them down with brown butter and cinnamon, and added crunchy cacao nibs. Available in October.
We love Southern Tier's PumKing ale, so it seemed fitting that we'd create a truffle based on its deliciousness. We simmered this brew for a long time to create an intense reduction, then blended with our bittersweet chocolate. A touch of house-made toffee, toasted pecans, and a pepita added crunch and sweetness. Available in October
Our version of a dark & stormy is made with semisweet chocolate, fresh ginger, dark rum, and a hint of lime. The bite from the fresh ginger works beautifully with the fruity dark rum, and the tart lime adds a hint of brightness. Available in October.
Tart cherries from Michigan, FEW bourbon (distilled in Evanston), and a touch of bitters mixed with bittersweet chocolate creates the perfect Manhattan cocktail in truffle form.
Goat cheese and chocolate together are delicious. You might think we're crazy, but think about it for a second. We've all had goat cheese with a touch of something sweet, like honey, apricots, or pears. We took that classic pairing and added chocolate and crunchy candied walnuts. One of our best sellers.
Our favorite Kilgus cream is infused with Ipsento's coffee (roasted only 4 blocks away!) and mixed with bittersweet chocolate. A dash of vanilla and a whole coffee bean garnish result in a super intense, powerful Java truffle reminiscent of the best mocha you've ever had. Great for late-night plots, studying for a final, or baby sleep training.
Dark rum and freshly toasted coconut are mixed with 65% cacao bittersweet chocolate to create the perfect winter truffle. Cherry and raisin notes of our rum as well as the subtle flavor and texture of toasted coconut make this truffle rich and complex. And can we say that this is the perfect truffle "for the guys?"
Oil of peppermint and Crème de Menthe liqueur are combined with milk and semisweet chocolate for an intense minty flavor and aroma. A thin shell of bittersweet chocolate contrasts the smooth, silky inside. One of our more classic truffles.
Lemon, orange, lime, and lemongrass essential oils are mixed with 58% cacao semisweet chocolate for a refreshing, summery truffle. A garnish of homemade candied orange peel makes this perfect for summer sweets tables. Our most popular truffle to pair with champagne.
Milk and semisweet chocolates are blended with freshly toasted ground hazelnuts and hazelnut paste. White pepper adds a subtle kick, and a flourish of hand-chopped hazelnuts adorn the milk chocolate shell. Pair this with a locally brewed porter, or rock it out by itself.
