Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Salt Caramel Theme Week.

Thomas Haas's Salted Caramel Truffle had a dark chocolate shell, was filled with 1/2 dark ganache and 1/2 soft caramel, and topped with a few grains of sea salt. It was one of the nicer salt caramels I've had this week, and the mixture of two fillings yielded an interesing and delicious tasting experience.

The only unfortunate part: truffles were packed in a plastic bag vs. a box, to there was some caramel leakage by time I got back to the hotel where I was staying.

Note: pictures will be delayed due to travel this week.
