Single Origin Dark Chocolate Truffles May 17 2017
In principle a dark chocolate truffle sounds pretty simple to make and there are a wide variety available in the marketplace today, usually produced by just making a dark chocolate ganache (chocolate and cream) and piping it into a chocolate shell. When we decided to take on the challenge of creating a dark chocolate truffle we knew in true London Chocolate style it would have to be something extraordinary…
Our expert chocolatiers started with a premium quality 67% single origin Madagascar dark chocolate, specially selected for its taste and rich aroma before adding cream and roasted cacao nibs to create a ganache with a distinct chocolaty flavour. The truffles are beautifully finished with 60% dark chocolate flakes to give them a unique texture and an intense chocolate taste.
The truffles are presented in our signature gift box and available to purchase online
A collection worthy of celebration October 20 2015
With the festive season fast approaching, here at The London Chocolate Company we thought about what our friends might like to give and receive as gifts. Our truffles have always been available in individual flavours but we felt that giving a gift, especially when attending a dinner party or visiting a family it would be nice to have a variety of truffles in a gift box to cater for different tastes – so we created our Signature Celebration Collection, featuring our Pink Champagne, Gin & Tonic, Ginger Beer and Salted Caramel Whisky truffles in a luxury gift box. For something extra special this year we’ve created a delightful Limited Edition Gin and Tonic Gift box which would make an ideal gift for a gin lover or food enthusiast.
Gin and Tonic Truffles July 31 2013
Our Gin & Tonic truffles officially launch tomorrow. Here’s a little background about our recipe for the truffle, it takes inspiration of course from the now world famous cocktail. The most common recipe is Gin, tonic water and a wedge of lemon or lime. We did some research on how some of the world’s top chefs prefer to serve this drink and many added a sprinkle of cinnamon to the drink to ‘lift’ the flavour of the gin. So we created a milk chocolate ganache and added London Gin and a little lemon paste. Then came the hard bit – replicating the tonic water, it doesn’t really have much of a taste but adds plenty of fizz to the cocktail. That’s where the popping candy comes in which we added to the outer white chocolate shell. Finally we added cinnamon oil to milk chocolate and decorated the outside of the truffle. Might seem like too much trouble for a chocolate but we think the final result is outstanding and well worth the effort, cheers.
