Named after the mushrooms of the same name, original truffles were made of chocolate ganache and rolled in cocoa. As truffles developed, they came to be enrobed in chocolate, giving us a delightful profusion of varieties. Champagne truffles, a particular favorite around this time of year, feature ganache mixed with champagne for the filling. Liqueur truffles are also offer an interesting take on the classic sweet.
