Bienvenue a Day #6 of French Chocolate Week.
Today's Xtra Dark French Chocolates were from Truffle Basket. These truffles were a "Product of France" and imported into the U.S. by Bon Courage Enterprises, Inc. (Four Oaks, NC).
These small, dark truffles had a dark chocolate aroma with notes of citrus and coffee.
The lush, "all-butter recipe" contained plenty of cacao and clarified butter that created a creamy truffle with a very satisfying melt. (The kind of bite that left teeth marks as if I'd bitten into a stick of lovely butter.)
These truffles were GMO free with no tropical oils or trans fats.
The attractive packaging was designed to look a bit like a wicker basket ("used to hold the other kind of truffle (the prized fungi that grows in the ground)").
