Gourmet Chocolate Truffles – The Perfect Gift!

Chocopologie Gift BoxLooking for the perfect treat to bring to a Thanksgiving dinner? Well look no further – Chocopologie Signature Collection gift box is here! Created by Chocolatier Fritz Knipschildt, these decadent treats will be the spotlight of the desert table, if they last long enough. There are nine all natural truffles in the collection and each truffle is a generous size so that one is enough to satisfy any sweet tooth.

There are six unique flavor experiences to explore in the gift box. There is, of course, the standard dark chocolate as well as a milk chocolate with caramel and sea salt. Both are rich and irresistible but if you are looking for a little adventure then you have to try the four other unusual flavors.

I must admit, when I first saw a PB&J flavor I was a little turned off. That is until I tried it. The best way I can describe this truffle is as if I was eating the desert version of an adult PB&J sandwich. Think of the flavors of the creamiest, smoothest peanut butter combined with a grape jam straight from a farmer’s market packed inside a layer of rich milk chocolate. I know it sounds out there, but it was delicious!

Next I tried the white chocolate coconut. It had an outrageous coconut flavor dusted with toasted coconut that enhanced the texture of the truffle. I consider this truffle to be the grown-up version of an Almond Joy (did I mention that this collection also took me on a trip back to my childhood?). To follow up, I grabbed one of the white chocolate hearts. At first bite you get a huge burst of strawberry. As you delve deeper, you begin to pick up on the savory notes of basil. I had no idea that these two flavors would work so well together!

To finish this flavor journey, I ended with the orange creamsicle. Wow did I save the best for last! The soothing flavors of orange and white chocolate blend seamlessly together. The truffle is coated with dehydrated orange dust that gives the truffle a texture similar to a powdered doughnut.

These truffles certainly were like nothing I had ever experienced before. I couldn’t believe with all the crazy flavors that these truffles are all natural. I  also appreciated the range of complexity the gift box offered. The collection has a truffle for a chocolate purist and a chocolate adventurer alike making this a perfect gift choice to appease any audience.
