You’d probably be forgiven for thinking that truffles are just a specific type of chocolate treat! Chocolate truffles were first created in France in 1895. The original chocolate truffles were a ball of chocolate ganache that was dusted with cocoa powder. These delicacies looked somewhat like the real dark, bumpy, mushroom-style fungi truffles, hence, this is how chocolate truffles got their name.
While there’s a clear difference between natural truffles and chocolate truffles, Fritz Knipschildt decided to blend the two. The chocolatier’s $250 truffle – it’s seriously that expensive – coats a Périgord truffle in 70% dark chocolate, oil, sugar and cream.
