Chocolate Truffles are one of the EASIEST confections to make. Stir some chocolate with cream and you are off to the races. We kicked this truffle up with our newest blend, Hibiscus Habanero spice blend, that has, you guessed it, Hibiscus flower blended with warm habanero powder, honey granules and a hint of salt. Once the chocolate truffles have had time to chill, the possibilities are endless. You can dust them in cocoa powder, roll them in chopped nuts, or drape them in melted chocolate and top with flakey salt, nonpareils, or dried hibiscus flowers if you’re trying to be extra fancy. Whip up a batch of these sweet and spicy truffles for Mother’s Day. Mom will thank you for the effort AND the deliciousness.
