Chocolate Truffles

Nothing speaks luxury quite like a decadent, silky smooth dark chocolate truffle!

Perfect as a holiday gift, or served as a special treat to a holiday meal, these gorgeous little jewels of deliciousness are sure to delight the recipients.

Decadent Chocolate Truffle Recipe

Decadent Black Onyx Cacao

The smooth deliciousness and impressive dark color of these truffles is due largely to the dark, purplish black onyx cacoa from Savory Spice store. Alkalized to the extreme, the natural bitterness of cacoa is removed, adding to the smooth mouthfeel.

Chocolate Decadence

A heady blend of black onyx cacao, dark chocolate, balsamic syrup, and spices, these intensely rich treats are lower in sugar, with complex layers of flavor.

Finish the truffles with Mayan spiced cocoa or chopped nuts, pop them in a pretty tin and you have a gorgeous, special homemade gift!
