Chocolate truffles have a creamy, chocolate ganache center enrobed in a thin shell of chocolate couverture. This decadent combination of chocolate-on-chocolate and the melt-in-the-mouth ganache center earned this treasured chocolate confection the name “truffle”. Chocolate truffles got their name from the highly prized “truffle mushroom”. These hard to obtain fungi are considered the top of the mushroom kingdom for gourmet cooking and have been known to out price gold. There’s no doubt that chocolate truffles live up to their title as the king of the chocolate world!
