Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate, Pumpkin and Warm Fall Spices Week.*
Today's Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Truffles were from Eva's Delights (San Rafael, CA). "Made with love in our home kitchen."
Aroma notes for these seasonal chocolate truffles included: subtle dark chocolate, and very faint pumpkin pie.
The outer, smooth dark chocolate shell gave way to a softer, substantial, pale pumpkin colored white chocolate center.
Flavor notes included: dark chocolate (couverture) and white chocolate ganache (filling)--flavored with very faint pumpkin spice syrup, pumpkin butter, and a very subtle splash of warming brandy. A sprinkle of salt across the top of each truffle helped to balance the overall sweetness.
Ingredients: French chocolate; Pumpkin Spice syrup; Pumpkin butter; cinnamon, cloves, and other warm spices; splash of Brandy; white chocolate and salt sprinkles.
