Gift Idea: Vermont-Made Truffles
Square-cut truffles imbued with whiskey, espresso, and crème fraîche make a sweet present.
December 06, 2012
Give a gift that might not last long but will be well remembered this holiday season in the form of decadent truffles from Vermont’s Lake Champlain Chocolates. Founded in 1983 in Burlington, the family-owned and operated chocolate company is sweet on local ingredients like maple syrup, honey, cream, and butter. Each square-cut truffle in its new 18-piece Revel Chocolates box is produced in part with local Vermont food purveyors, such as Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery, Whistle Pig Distillery, and George Howell Coffee. The locally inspired flavors combine with Lake Champlain Chocolates’ traditional chocolate ganache to create unexpected and remarkable combinations such as truffles with Vermont crème fraiche or Whistle Pig’s rye whiskey. You can find Lake Champlain Chocolates at local Whole Foods stores or online at lakechamplainchocolates.com.
