Honey. And not just any honey. This Vosges (Chicago, IL) chocolate truffle was filled with a layer of dark chocolate ganache, and a layer of organic honey from the wonderfully seismic and scenic, "Big Island" of Hawaii. (The honey supplier: Volcano Island Hawaii.)

It's always dreamy to think about Hawaii in the middle of winter. I ate this truffle in the cold morning air; I should have warmed it up a few degrees first, to be able to enjoy optimal flavors and texture. Aloha.
