Lindor-Chocolate-TrufflesAny chocolate lover will appreciate gourmet chocolate truffles. Either as a gift for someone else or yourself, these treats are creamy, rich and utterly delicious. A perfect addition to anyone’s chocolate stash.

Understanding Truffles

The term truffles actually has two meanings. When it comes to sweets, we are not talking about the mushroom variety that pigs have a particularly good ability to sniff out. Especially French pigs! We are talking about a style of confectionery that is known as ganache. It’s a creamy sweet center that is surrounded by rich, hard chocolate. In the late 1800’s, the term truffle was applied to these sweet treats as a way to show the deliciousness of the candy.

Favorite Chocolate Truffles

The Lindor Candy Company is one that I have liked for years. Their chocolates are always rich and delicious and their truffles are creamy. One of the other things that makes them outstanding in my view is their price tag. These are not overly priced. I have tried many of the much more expensive ones, and while they are good, I can’t justify the price.

The varieties that Lindor offers are numerous. My biggest problem is to not eat them all in one sitting. These are great candies!

Gifts and Guests

Not only have I enjoyed the Lindor chocolate truffles, but I have many times given them as gifts. Only compliments came as a result. Even more than that, I have served these candies to my guests. One of my favorite desserts is French Vanilla ice cream with chocolate truffles served on the side. It’s a simple dessert to put together and is always a hit with my guests.

Of course, there are many variations and makers of these delicious treats. At gourmet chocolate truffles you can see plenty more. Choose the ones that you would like to try. Or pick the perfect ones for chocolate-lovers on your gift list. With gourmet chocolate truffles, no one will be disappointed.
