The Brussels chocolate truffles - an original and delicious recipe
Chocolate truffles are a delicacy that date back to the end of the 19th century and they came about by accident! The creation of this sweet treat was due to a lack of raw materials and so with a touch of inspiration and the only ingredients at hand, a pastry chef had the idea of mixing vanilla, cocoa powder and fresh cream together. He decided to dip the mixture in melted chocolate and then add a coating of cocoa powder. And so the chocolate truffle was born!
Every year, the Jeff de Bruges teams take pleasure in preparing Brussels truffles. Our Brussels chocolate truffles are made following the original recipe with Ecuadorian cocoa beans that come from our own plantations. These Brussels truffles are exquisitely chocolatey. You’ll find that the mixture used is especially delicious as it is slightly more compact than a classic ganache. This tasty mix is carefully moulded into chocolate with cocoa powder around it. The cocoa powder we use is the ultimate touch to enhance these Brussels truffles, and so we have decided to provide it in a range of flavours to please all gourmands!
A wide choice of chocolate truffles makes a chocolatey powdered collection!
To satisfy all types of chocoholics the Brussels chocolate truffle is available in four different Ecuadorian cocoa powders.
The first is an intense and full-bodied truffle, made of 70% dark chocolate. The second is made of 60% dark chocolate and is delicately flavoured with mandarin. For those with a sweet tooth, we have also created a silky truffle with 34% milk chocolate. And finally, for those who appreciate the combination of sweetness and body, we have created a milk chocolate truffle flavoured with 100% Arabico ristretto coffee. Everyone will enjoy the beautiful texture of each truffle which is like a melted, intense, generously coated chocolate marble. At Jeff de Bruges, we cannot wait for you to discover these four original recipes full of refined, powerful and authentic flavours.
Simply surrender to this delicate, powdery selection that you can find in cones or boxes tastefully decorated with the image of the Grand-Place of Brussels under a star-filled sky.
