Welcome to the first day of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.
I'm always happy to sample new chocolate offerings from NeoCocoa (Belmont, CA). Today I enjoyed one of an immaculately sliced group (of 6) Hazelnut Butter Dark Milk truffles.
NeoCocoa Owner Christine Doerr perfected the "Hearts of Chocolate"truffle experience, and Amanda (who I met at the Farmers Market) was doing a great job helping to promote and fulfill this tradition.
Think of the most outstanding creamy ganache filling inside a chocolate covered truffle, and just leave out the harder chocolate couverture (covering). Today's dark milk truffles, flavored with a hint of hazelnut, were just like that.
Unfortunately for me, while wheat-free, these creamy truffles did contain a thin, slightly crunchy wafer layer at the bottom that contained barley malt flour. However, I'm hoping tasting one will be OK. Ah to be free from such concerns; but that's life.
