Chocolate Truffles NYC Are The Best Dessert

by Allyson Burke

Entertaining for the holidays? Most hosts and hostesses will seek a new dessert to tantalize their guests. Chocolate truffles NYC are the best choice because they add unusually fine richness, sumptuous sweetness, and decadent passions to the meal. No dessert is more wonderful, chocolaty, and special in sensation than this hand-made, hand-rolled treat. Chocolate is the ingredient of lovers.

Truffles were at one time a simple affair: a bite of creamy, buttery ganache with perhaps some ground nuts added to it or to roll in, or a sprinkle of dark cocoa powder over the top. However, as this dessert has caught on, as a candy shop item, gourmet finish to the meal, or quality gift sent through the mail, it has become the confection of confections. They have expanded in variety. Now you can sample them made in all flavors, m white, milk, dark, orange, and sea salt truffles, with fruit mixed in or atypical nuts, to your heart's contentment.

Twice a year, especially, the signature versions, hand-crafted make a huge splash. Christmas and Valentines' are both times of year when these little beauties are thoroughly enjoyed, especially a hand rolled box custom designed for its content. There is almost no way to make that very special someone feel more desired, loved, or admired. You can purchase a little box at a sweet store, make them yourself at home, or dive into a sumptuous dozen made to order online.

Ultimately, it is always going to be fine ingredients which make for a fine dessert truffle. For most recipes, it will be the butter and brand of cocoa used that will make the difference. They are not difficult to make. Lovely papers and wrappers, or decorative boxes can be just the housing for a group of handmade sweets, giving texture, color and special delight to the gift.

Historically, the name 'truffle' derives from the Latin word for tuber, or lump. There are, of course, the blackish, mushroom like things that pigs dig out of the ground in the French countryside, which we eat with savory dishes for thirty-five dollars a pound. Delicacies both, our sweet version is, too, about the size of a mushroom and dark in color. It is frequently found, in a walnut sized mound, covered in nuts, coconut, powdered cocoa, or white confectioners sugar, but sprinkles and other candy coatings can be added.

Recipes for the delicious mouthful of butter and chocolate have spread from France all over Europe and to America, where cultures vary the recipe and ingredients. Many will add liqueur, rum or brandy to spike the truffle and make them extra delicious.

The vegan version replaces dairy products with nut butters, margarine, and rice or almond milk; carob for cocoa. These are quite wonderful and can be ordered from certain speciality confection shops or recipes can be found online.
