Did you know the rich, sweet confections we call truffles were so named because the original cocoa-coated and quite misshapen candy treat closely resembled the rare fungus of the same name? Did you also know that Trader Joe’s Cocoa Truffles are made for us in Canada, according to a traditional French recipe, by a French-owned company that’s been making truffles since 1948? In fact, the recipe for these delicacies have been passed on from father to son over generations, and you can taste the attention to detail and artistry in every creamy, chocolaty bite.
Trader Joe’s Cocoa Truffles are small, slightly irregular in shape, and rolled in cocoa power, as tradition dictates. They melt quickly in your mouth – a truly delightful “something sweet” to make your day a little brighter. And, if you’re willing to part with them, the understated and elegant box makes a great hostess/host gift, as well.
