I have just moved down South, and found myself at a house party recently. On the table, amongst the nibbles were Grand Cru Truffles (£36.00). I nearly squealed when I saw them: dark, cocoa dusted balls which just begged to be eaten.
No sooner had I spotted them, than I popped one in my mouth. It was a wonderful experience. Decadent and luxurious all in one go. I was one happy camper.
Grand Cru claim these truffles are "made using the finest cacao beans from the world's premier sources, refined with fresh cream, is smothered in mouth-watering Swiss dark chocolate and sprinkled with a dash of cacao powder."
Whilst it's a bit of a sales pitch, they're actually right; the inner truffles is an unbelievably creamy and fresh delight, and the outer truffle is dark chocolate, coated in a raw chocolate lovers favourite: cacao powder.
These are quite pricey truffles, so they make a great gift, or party piece to be shared. I certainly wouldn't buy these for myself because that is simply too indulgent. Shared, however, they're great.
