Truffles are a delectable type of dessert! They made with a chocolate ganache center that is then coated in chocolate powder.  What makes a truffle so delectable is the creamy ganache center. The cocoa powder coating only adds to the decadent nature of the truffle. Once coated in chocolate powder, the confections resemble a fungus, called a truffle. – talk about a piece of chocolate heaven!

The chocolate truffle was invented in 1895 by M. Dofour in Chambery, France. This dessert’s popularity increased dramatically after the Prestat Chocolate Shop opened in London in 1902.

Today there are three types of chocolate truffles: All of these types of chocolate truffles differ in look, taste, and shelf-life. Europeans, the Swiss and Americans have their own way of making truffles, by using various ingredients from butterfat or syrup to dairy cream. Truffles gained popularity in the 1920s.

The American truffle was invented in the 1980’s by Joseph Schmidt. This half-sphere shaped truffle is made of milk chocolate and butterfat.

The European version of the chocolate truffle is made of syrup, cocoa powder, and milk powder.

The Swiss truffle is made with melted chocolate, dairy cream, butter, and cocoa powder. Swiss truffles have the shortest shelf-life compared to the other truffles and should be eaten within a few days of production.
