12 inch B/O Christmas Led Scene210000001499
A European confectioner mixed chocolate and heavy cream together to form ganache - a thick, creamy mass that was the center of a truffle. The ganache or center was then shaped into small spheres, dipped in chocolate and then rolled in cocoa powder on a wire rack.
These chocolates looked much like the fungus. Because of their similar appearance, rarity, and the status they share as delicacies, these confections became known as truffles.
These Truffles are made by Birnn's Chocolatiers of Vermont and are absolutely fabulous. Each truffle is just over 1 inch in diameter.
