Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.
Today's three Belgian truffles came from an 8-piece assortment Ballotin Box that I received as a holiday gift from a friend.
The first truffle sampled was shaped like a leaf, that enveloped a tasty hazelnut chocolate ganache/filling. The second "snail" shaped truffle had a milk chocolate filling with what I'm guessing were tiny bits of wafer (feuilletine style).* The third chocolate (pictured at bottom left of photo) was filled with soft, flowing caramel.
*Those who are very sensitive to wheat might want to sample a small bite of each truffle first before taking a larger bite.
