Fantastic Post-Christmas Chocolate Find: Peppermint Dark Chocolate Truffles

Did you find nearly no treats in your stocking this year? This happens sometimes. You get socks, books, scarves, gloves, but no sweet treats. This particularly happens to me because my friends and family don't know what kind of chocolate to buy a chocolatier-slash-chocolate maker for Christmas. And the kind of chocolate that I like (bean-to-bar, craft chocolate) is not made or sold by anyone other than me in Northern Ontario. But if you are like me, and still appreciate a good store-bought truffle, or meltaway, and you LOVE peppermint and natural ingredients, then you will like this fantastic find I discovered at Bulk Barn yesterday: Peppermint Dark Chocolate Truffles by Splendid Chocolate.

 
There are eight 'truffles' (technically they are 'meltaways' since the truffles are made with coconut oil rather than fresh cream, like a Lindor Truffle) in the box and only a few ingredients, including semi-sweet dark chocolate (sugar, chocolate liquor/cocoa beans, cocoa butter, soy lecithin and vanilla extract), coconut oil and natural peppermint flavour.  It was only $3.99!  I assume this was a sale price after Christmas, because with a price that low regularly, I'd soon be put out of business.




The chocolates are made by Splendid Chocolates Ltd. in Montreal. Learn more about the maker at: www.SplendidChocolates.com. You can buy them at Bulk Barn. For more information on this retailer, visit www.bulkbarn.ca.

Happy treat eating!
