Breakfast for Dessert

Good Morning all! I hope you woke up with an appetite today. As most of you know here at Shocolaate we release seasonal truffles. Last year as soon as these French Toast Truffles released they blew out the door. So here they are again! These are made with a shell of pearl white chocolate and a creamy center of cinnamon, honey, maple and a few other secret ingredients. Basically it's like French Toast but better! The rest of the week I will release photos of our other seasonal truffles. Keep an eye out for our PUMPKIN truffle!

The next truffle I am going to post has been a favorite since the day it made its debut. The S'mores truffle. This is the no hassle version of eating a S'mores! No campire required yet still brings back great memories eating them as a kid. Like anything else, any good product starts with good quality ingredients. This is made with a bittersweet dark chocolate and laced with marshmallows. It's then dipped in a creamy milk chocolate and rolled in graham cracker crumbs. If' you're feeling nostalgic then by all means eat them on a stick! (Skewers are fine too :))

These truffles will be great conversation starters at any event this season! Email me for more details! Available in boxes or platters. 

Hope you enjoyed looking at them! Now...enjoy eating them :)

With LOVE -Shocolaategirl
