The Chocolate Truffle’s winter specialty treat!
As we welcome 2021 with a cold, snowy January, all we can think about is cozying up to a fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa and a few of The Chocolate Truffle’s specialty treats. This past year has brought a lot of interesting changes in our lives big and small, but one of the great things that came out of this year was the innovative treats that flooded social media. We are loving what we saw with Hot Chocolate Bombs, the sweet melty surprise in every cup! Which is why we decided to make them right here at our shop!
Hot chocolate bombs are individual chocolate balls that are secretly hiding cocoa and marshmallows inside a smooth chocolatey exterior. As the hot milk pours over the chocolate, it melts and reveals the surprise inside! Perfectly customizable with your favorite ingredients inside, hot chocolate bombs are fun for everyone!
Hot chocolate bombs make perfect treats for a wintery day and perfect presents for delivery to a loved one! We’ve incorporated our innovative chocolate flavors and designs to bring you deliciously gourmet hot chocolate bombs without all the mess at home!
But where did hot chocolate even come from? We’ve touched on the origin of chocolate before but hot chocolate has a special place in its history. The Mayans were the first to introduce the idea of hot chocolate, but it wasn’t the sweet sugary treat we know today. The Mayans made a drink from ground cocoa seeds, water, cornmeal and chili peppers. Often served cold, this chocolate drink made its way over to Europe where it stayed true to its origins for a little while. Over time, the chili peppers were removed, the drink was sweetened and served hot. As news of this treat spread, its popularity grew and variations were created. Milk was introduced to the recipe, and drinking chocolate truly became a decadent treat!
However you enjoy your hot chocolate…homemade, from a mix, or in a specialty chocolate bomb, we are all about the love of chocolate! The Chocolate Truffle specializes in handmade chocolates for every occasion! Order online, stop by the shop, or order curbside pickup for your chocolate pick-me-up!
