Chocolate truffles made with champagne are delicious dreams blended from two of the most wonderful ingredients that exist.
Chocolate and champagne make a perfect gastronomic, indulgent, pleasurable and romantic match. They whisper toghether ssshhhocolate and ssshhhampange, yet are both explosive balls of chocolate and bubbles of champagne.
The couture chocolatiers in France do not make champagne flavoured truffles (any reference to Fine Champagne will be made with Cognac). Parisien truffles are plain and pure in the style of espresso cafés and chocolat noir, however, they do suggest that you drink champagne while you eat them.
The English not only put the bubbles in champagne, they put the champagne in chocolate. Milk, dark, white and pink champagne truffles are created by chocolate makers in London are described as: “fine”, “handmade”, “specialty”, “artisan”, “bespoke” “exclusive” and “boutique”.
TRUFFLES MADE WITH AOC CHAMPAGNE
Demarquette Champagne Truffles made with Dom Perignon
Unlike most champagne truffles which are made using ‘Marc de Champagne’ our unique recipe uses only real vintage Brut Champagne (Dom Perignon Champagne) blended with our very own secret recipe of cocoas from around the world and the very best Cornish and Hampshire creams. We then hand-dip each truffle in our award-winning 65% couverture chocolate before dusting them with pure cocoa powder. Due to the freshness of the ingredients this product should be consumed within two weeks.
