A Chocolate A Day #1 – Mexican Chocolate Truffle

I won some lovely gourmet bonbons from Trish at Off Camera With Trish Van Pilsum.  The tasty little treats come from Alma Chocolates out of Portland, OR.  The first chocolate is a Mexican Chocolate Truffle “gently spiced with chile de arbol and cinnamon”.


I bit through the outer shell of dark chocolate and cocoa to a rich and smooth truffle center.  It melted in my mouth and once the truffle was gone, the light spice of the chiles remained.  I wasn’t sure I’d like the spicy chiles in my chocolate, but I really loved it!  I could definitely have eaten more of these!
