Truffle Flavors

Oh, those truffle flavors!

I make chocolate truffles to order and can send overnight by mail;  they are also available at the indoor market at Lincoln Square, Urbana IL, and at Strawberry Fields, also in Urbana.

Here are flavors I have made in the past:

  • Peppermint: flavored with mint, creme de menthe, and freshly ground black pepper
  • Brandy Lego bricks:  these are self-explanatory, I imagine.
  • Tangerine dream:  tangerine based with a dollop of vegan cream cheese laced with maple syrup and vanilla
  • Maple with spiced pecans:  maple and whiskey flavors, topped with pecans toasted with brown sugar and spices
  • Orange:  chocolate flowers with orange and Grand Marnier
  • Lemon-pistachio:  lemon+limoncello topped with toasted pistachios
  • Pomegranate:  pomegranate flavor with a good dollop of pomegranate molasses, topped with Montmorency (sour) cherries
  • Honey-almond:  honey, almond, and amaretto flavors, with toasted sliced almonds
  • Tequila-lime:  as you would imagine, sprinkled with smoked salt
  • Mocha-cardamom:  coffee, coffee liqueur, cinnamon and cardamom — like Middle Eastern spiced coffee, only with chocolate!
  • Hot spiced rum:  rum flavoring with allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, and a dollop of molasses, finished with chilli-lime sprinkles
  • Fig-anise:  Fig jam enlivened with subtle anise flavor and laced with 20-year-old balsamic vinegar — sounds odd but tastes amazing!
  • Ginger:  ground ginger, fresh ginger, ginger flavoring AND crystallized ginger on top!
  • Raspberry Stars:  raspberry and a touch of pomegranate molasses
  • Bourbon Street Stars:  bourbon flavoring with nutmeg, molasses, and a touch of chilli, dusted with brown sugar.
  • Marzipan:  a base flavored with buttered rum and amaretto, topped with marzipan

And, for those who can’t eat or dislike dairy, I make several flavors with avocado and coconut oil — or Earth Balance vegan spread — rather than butter:

  • Lime-in-the-coconut — a dairy-free truffle flavored with lime, coconut, and avocado rather than butter — surprisingly delicious!
  • Mocha-cardamom — with coffee, cardamom, and cinnamon
  • Peppermint Stars — a delicate combination of essence of peppermint, creme de menthe and freshly ground pepper!
