Influencing the vote

Since yesterday was election day and you are all still in the voting mindset (you did vote didn’t you) I thought I’d give you complete descriptions of the truffle flavors.? Tacoma Chickadee, it would be the trusty husband and I that keep voting for the Pistachio flavor.? No, we’ve never had them.? We do it just to irritate you.

You obviously know that Candy Cane is already a given.? (candy cane powder milk chocolate centers coated with milk chocolate then rolled in crushed candy cane)? The other flavor is Chili.? Don’t freak out.? It is dark chocolate centers with a hint of chili, coated in Dark Chocolate sprinkled with Dagoba Xocolatl shavings.? Pair it with a Petite Syrah and you won’t be disappointed.

Dark Chocolate – Dark Chocolate centers with Dark Chocolate coating sprinkled with Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa (I use Ghirardelli chocolate for these)

Pistachio/Dark Chocolate – Dark chocolate centers covered in a dark chocolate shell rolled in toasted pistachios

Mocha – Starbucks Christmas blend infused milk chocolate mocha centers coated with milk chocolate topped with a coffee bean

Grand Marnier -? Grand Marnier infused dark chocolate centers coated with dark chocolate sprinkled with crushed Lindt Orange/Almond chocolate crumbles

Champagne – Champagne Cognac infused milk chocolate centers coated with milk chocolate sprinkled with powdered sugar

Hazelnut – Hazelnut flavored centers covered in milk chocolate and rolled in toasted hazelnut

Milk Chocolate – Milk Chocolate centers with Milk chocolate coating sprinkled with cocoa

Cinnamon -? Cinnamon infused milk chocolate centers covered in Dark Chocolate topped with a red hot

Raspberry – Raspberry milk chocolate centers covered in? Milk chocolate sprinkled with shaved Dagoba Roseberry Chocolate

Vanilla – Vanilla bean infused milk chocolate coated in milk chocolate and sprinkled with shaved Lindt White chocolate

I will not be making any chocolates using all white chocolate.? The shaved white on the Vanilla is as close as it will come.? The White Russians from Mother’s Day nearly made me give up on ever making truffles again.? So Wendy, the caffeine ones will be the Mocha.

Also, the list of Go Purple Participants is up.? Go check out your competition.? We will do the drawing for the box of chocolates at the end of the month.? kate, if you win we will make sure to get them to you.? And if you live outside of the US and would like to order truffles or caramels just email me.? We will send them if you are willing to pay extra for shipping.

    Oooh, I love a little heat in my chocolate. I guess I can lice without the White Russians if I have chili chocolates!

  2. I am salivating with the descriptions!! I can’t decide which to get, but have asked Eric to take a look at the site. I know we’re getting the candy cane!! And my guess is that he’s going to want the chili. I started putting a little bit of chili powder in my chocolate chip cookies (amongst other things), and love the result! Chinese 5 Spice is another good one!

  4. I was hoping the candy cane was a given because it wasn’t on the list.

  5. Yay! That pistachio doesn’t look gross! 🙂
