I'm not sure "Oopsy-Daisy" truffles from NYDC Chocolate (Albuquerque, NM) were the most appropriately-named chocolates to be eating the day I was boarding airline flights to far flung destinations. But they didn't seem to do any harm.

These dark chocolate coated orbs adorned with a thin, pink stripe, were relatively smooth and creamy for a caramel or a piece of fudge -- they echoed both flavors. The truffles were swaddled in bright copper foil, and helped to brighten up time spent in airports.

The origin of the Oopsy-Daisy name, as I understand it, had to do with a happy accident in the Kitchen at NYDC Chocolate, and the melding of fudge and caramel. I love hearing about creative discoveries like this.

Today was Day #13 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Weeks.
