Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate, Spirits and Savory Snacks Theme Week.

Today's Dark Sea Salt Caramel Truffles were from Charbonnel et Walker (London). Previously, truffles sampled from this historic chocolatier included four spirit-infused flavors: champagne, gin, rum and whisky. (No spirits today; but I did enjoy these with wine and cheese.) 

Aroma notes included: chocolate (cocoa).

The relatively thick outer dark chocolate shell was crunchy, the inner filling was creamy, and the entire truffle was chocolate-y (hot chocolate, drinking chocolate, chocolate mousse). The ganache (filling) also had a subtle salt caramel flavor.

These creamy, crunchy and chocolate-y truffles went well with wine and cheese(s); but would also have been good with savory nuts, sliced fruit, and a sip of salted mocha latte spiked with Amaretto.

Maker's description: " A beautiful mini-heart with three of our delicious Dark Chocolate Truffles with a Sea Salt Caramel center."
