Today's Almond Crunch Truffle from Compartes Chocolatier (Los Angeles, CA) -- adorned with a stylish yellow plaid pattern across the top -- was part of a 10-piece Jonathan's Signature Truffles assortment box. The not too sweet almond crunch filling (made with finely chopped roasted almonds and crunchy wafer bits*) was surrounded by dark chocolate.
Note: I discovered after I ate this truffle that the "crunch" in the Almond Crunch came from wafer bits, i.e. wheat. The truffle was still good, but I don't eat wheat. I'll have to check the ingredients list more closely next time.
Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.
