Back in September, we reviewed Clerkenwell’s Manjari Truffles – simple and delicious fresh chocolates made with Valrhona’s Madagascan Manjari chocolate. They’re some of the nicest unflavoured chocolates I’ve ever tasted.
Last week, this little box unexpectedly arrived at my door. Exactly the kind of surprise I like.
Inside are four dark chocolate truffles that look something like this:
The truffles use the same Manjari chocolate in a ganache made with passion fruit puree. The dark chocolate shells are nice and thin, and the moment you bite into them, the flavour of the ganache bursts through. It’s tangy, zingy, citrusy and wonderful. I love them, and if you love fruity, citrusy chocolates, you’ll love them too.
And that’s really all there is to say about these chocolates. They’re something you really need to try for yourself. Unfortunately, they aren’t available to buy online, but lucky Londoners can find them at Kaffeine, 66 Great Titchfield Street, W1W 7QJ.
