When Premium Chocolatiers sent me an email about their Valentine's Day chocolates, I had to wipe the drool off of my keyboard. It takes a lot to get to me like that because I don't have a penchant for sweets but my intuition was flashing and now, once I have tasted them, all I can say is WOW!
When the box arrived I couldn't tear it open fast enough. I was captivated by the pink and brown (in my opinion, the best color combination!) and I was nice enough to wait until I could open it with Dexter. You see, he saw the email that I got and the pictures of the chocolates and he was, I think, more excited to try them that I was.
Fast forward to our dessert time. You know dessert time, right? Thats the moment, right after dinner when the kids are begging for a treat. I went to the kitchen, poured a glass of Cabernet for myself and grabbed the gorgeous box of treats. Nothing goes better with chocolate than a nice glass of red wine....nothing!
Now that I have your attention, lets discuss the truffle flavors. From left to right you have: Milk Fudge, Raspberry Truffle, Salted Caramel, Grand Marnier and Coffee Truffle.
Forward to Dexter begging for the Milk Fudge which I happily fork over. I chose the Salted Caramel for myself, Raspberry Truffle for Oliver and Coffee Truffle for Jason. Of course, it wouldn't be fair for my review if I didn't nibble on each piece first however. I will tell you that they are all amazingly rich and decadent. I was really in heaven with this box. I may have to hide the rest so no one can find them.
My absolute favorite was the Salted Caramel. It was almost like a salty chocolate coated carmel brownie. Yes, that good. I also absolutely loved the Coffee Truffle. Jason adored the Coffee Truffles and that is saying a lot since he is not much of a sweets guy either. All of these truffles were amazing with the red wine, which enhances the chocolate experience. Don't believe me, try it for yourself. You can thank me later. I have to admit that I liked each of the truffles although I am not very keen with fruity chocolates. I just don't get it. I like a chocolate covered strawberries but thats about where I draw the line. Lucky for me, the kids will never turn down a piece of chocolate and they loved the Raspberry Truffles. Win-win.
One thing I forgot to mention, which you aren't going to believe is that these are VEGAN truffles. I simply couldn't believe that they are egg-free, dairy-free, nut-free and gluten-free. WOW! Now I can have my chocolates and eat them too.
