I had a twitter conversation with Tacoma Chickadee the other day about Sweet Hope Truffles.? My Nashville Wraps catalog came and reminded me that it is time to start thinking about such things.
Every year I make truffles and sell them at Christmas.? We vote on the flavors I will make and the proceeds go to adoptive families.
This year I’m going to do things a little differently.? In honor of the election year you get to hold a primary.? You will leave a comment and cast a ballot for a flavor you would like to see as a Sweet Hope Truffle.? Unlike normal elections you will have the opportunity to vote more than once.? Leave a separate comment for each flavor and you may vote for a flavor that another person has proposed.? The top 8 flavors will make it into the final ballot and from there the top 6 will be made*.
You have until the end of this week to cast your ballot and the final voting will be the first week in November (election week).? Sweet Hope Truffles will go on sale November 10th and ship in time for Christmas.
Just as an Update: I have made milk chocolate, dark chocolate, peppermint (candy cane), mocha, hazelnut, orange-ginger, Grand Marnier, Pistachio, Raspberry, Chili (my favorites), White Russian (not sure I’d do those the same way) and Irish Cream.
*Although this may appear to be a democratic process please keep in mind that I will have to make the truffles and therefore will actually become a dictatorship if any chocolate involving meat or meat-like produce is proclaimed a winner.? You can try, but don’t think for a moment that I would willingly touch raw bacon.
