   Lime-infused ganache, garnished with white chocolate and candied lime zest
   Lavender-infused ganache, garnished with white chocolate
   Chili pepper-infused ganache, with spicy cocoa garnish
   Peanut Butter ganache, garnished with dark chocolate swirl.


Your choice of any six truffles. 
Specify packaging:

Is there deluxe packaging for those of us who want to buy them for ourselves?

Forgot to mention:

Traditional chocolate ganache truffle coated in powdered sugar also available.

Also, I will have a dipped, raspberry-Chambord truffle.

Sorry for the omission. 

Huge thanks to my first customers!!!    :mrgreen:

Goldfishboy, do I detect an order???  I'll give you a special ribbon.   :wink:

Thanks, enigmacat!!!

Flooz, thanks for the endorsement!!!

Ganache is a heavenly mixture of chocolate and cream.  Depending on the ratio of chocolate to cream, it can be super thick and fudgy, or shiny and glaze-like.  Magical.   :-)

So where was this free sample giveaway?  Hopefully not at JD's place 1 block from my work place. 

Good luck with the truffles.

Haha, naw, I'd brought some back from school a few weeks ago. You raise an excellent point, though, Jonathan.  I might have to do a Truffle Party sometime this season.  Hmmm.....

PS: If all goes well in candy land this holiday season, I'll bust out the chocolate again for Valentine's Day.

Wanna put some cakes and pies on that list?

I was thinking about that, NYCMacUser, but startup funds are limited, and I'm really really good at truffles.  Cakes and pies need more practice.  Plus, to keep it simple, it's a million times easier to sell just one thing.  Once I master certain cakes and pies, I'll branch out.

Is there a special price if we order in bulk and don't require special packaging?

A.. um ..friend of mine is a bit of a chocohaulic.

For the record these do sound delectable.
