Cocoa Trees produce pods and each pod contains about 20 to 50 Cocoa Beans. There are different varieties of Cocoa Beans with different flavors, and, just like different grapes are used to make different wines, different Cocoa Beans are used to make different kinds of Chocolates. Cocoa Beans are fermented, dried, roasted, and ground before being used to produce chocolate.
Chocolate truffles are a group of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache centre coated in chocolate or cocoa powder, usually in a spherical, conical or curved shape. Other fillings may replace the ganache: cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, almonds, berries or other assorted sweet fruits, nougat, fudge or toffee, mint, chocolate chips, marshmallow and popularly liquor. Whatever the filling... they're always simply divine!
Serenata has delectable chocolate truffles ready for ordering and shipping. These small confections are an extraordinary treat. In December of the year 1895, M. Duffor created the first chocolate truffle in Chambery, France. The name comes from the truffle mushroom because the confection has the shape of one of those mushrooms, but they are sweet chocolate confectioneries.
Many varieties of the chocolate truffle are available worldwide. An American variation of the chocolate truffle forms the confection in an oval shape. Joseph Schmidt started making these chocolates in the mid-1980s in San Francisco where he is a professional chocolatier. The European truffle starts with syrup to which is added cocoa powder, milk powder, fats and more. These are mixed and the convection is rolled into a ball. Other truffles come from Canada, Russia, and other countries.
Pure, simple ingredients that melt in the mouth combine to make decadent chocolate truffles. Then, imagination helps professionals to create amazingly decorative exteriors. Some of these confections are rolled in nuts or cocoa powder. Others have a hardened chocolate layer or icing with embellishments of icing and candies. Some exteriors are even more elaborate with figures of flowers, animals and more.
