When you get that craving for a dark chocolate truffle....try this: Brockmann's Truffini Double Dark
If you get the occasional craving (like I do) for that smooth, truffle centre, this chocolate bar may be just what you need to satisfy that craving.
Godiva milk chocolate truffle bar, this chocolate bar is a full 100 grams, which is great for sharing and for consuming over several days. Since it has a mix of coconut oil and butter oil, the centre is a little softer (as compared to when only coconut oil is used) with a slightly buttery flavour. It is a little on the sweet side, but I suppose that depends on personal preference.
What I really love about this brand (besides being Canadian) is their focus on natural ingredients - not enough manufacturers of chocolate truffle bars focus on being natural these days (too often I pick up a chocolate bar with a 'truffle' or 'mousse' centre and the ingredients include all sorts of horrid things like hydrogenated oil, glucose and high fructose corn syrup and more).
I purchased this chocolate bar at Manitoulin Chocolate Works in Kagawong, ON and I have often purchased the Truffini individually wrapped truffles at Loco Beanz Coffee House in Little Current. You can find out where it is sold near you here. Or you can purchase it online here.
this other Canadian chocolatier with the Truffle Pigs brand from the same neck of the woods. Their new "Kiss Me" frogs are both adorable and also offer a tasty truffle centre.
