Bienvenue a Day #7 of French Chocolate Week.

Today's Traditional Cocoa-Dusted Chocolate Truffles from Truffle Basket were similar to yesterday's Xtra Dark French Chocolates (truffles) from the same company, except yesterday's were made with an "all-butter" (clarified butter) recipe. These truffles were made with vegetable oils (coconut and/or palm kernel).

Both versions were good and, other than butter vs. oil choice, very similar. Today's Traditional truffles had a subtle dark chocolate and bread aroma, and an ultra creamy chocolate ganache, that could be paired (it was suggested) with a "delicate bubbly (Champagne), gutsy red (wine) or light roast (coffee)."

"Made in France since 1931," these cocoa-dusted truffles were imported to the U.S. by Bon Courage Enterprises, Inc. (Four Oaks, NC).
