What’s your FAVOURITE CHOCOLATE?
Do you like soft centres or hard? Do you like fruity chocolates or the nutty ones? Perhaps you like ones with your favourite tipple. Our customers keep coming back for more Saffire Handmade Chocolates.
Let’s see if you like the favourite chocolates chosen by our amazing customers over Easter.
This is a presentation box of our best selling handmade truffles this Easter … Working from left to right, top row first …
In first place, (drum roll please!) Just Raspberries Truffle
We are not surprised by this, not only do we use real raspberries in the centre we add an extra tingle for your taste buds by hand rolling each one in still more real raspberry powder.
Dropping in to second place is our gooey, rich salted caramel truffle. Yes, it does come encased in our amazing in 60% dark Belgian chocolate it is topped with a few grains of Maldon Sea Salt. I am sure you can imagine the taste: rich, smooth, sticky but at the same time slightly salty caramel. Don’t take our words for it, why not try one for yourself.
Marc de Champagne Truffle
In third place this Easter comes our Champagne Truffle. We use only genuine Marc de Champagne, produced by a second fermentation of the Champagne grapes. This is the last thing we add to our white chocolate ganache, it is not ‘boiled off’ so be aware that this truffle contains the real thing! You might want to save this for a quiet evening at home when you are not driving.
Summer Strawberry Truffle come next …
Let’s call it the taste of early summer, nothing like the ones that used to get left in the box, these are like eating strawberries straight from the garden. Each strawberry truffle has been individually handmade and hand rolled in white Belgian chocolate and freeze-dried strawberry powder.
Smirnoff Vodka & Orange Truffle
Also known as the ‘Screwball’ cocktail, and as everyone knows, to make a great Screwball you need to use a good vodka, that’s why we use only Smirnoff’s triple distilled red label vodka. You may be tempted to eat more than one, but be aware, these are seriously grown up chocolates as we do not boil off the alcohol!
Espresso Coffee Truffles
Forget the coffee chocolates that used to be left in the box at Christmas. These Espresso Coffee truffles really pack a punch. We make these for our customers who love both their coffee and dark chocolate to be rich and strong.
These truffles are the all-time favourite with our staff as we combine two of our favourite foods: chocolate and salty roasted peanuts. The centre of this truffle is packed with chopped peanuts and to give it an added crunch, each truffle is dipped in Belgian milk chocolate before being individually hand rolled in more chopped salty peanuts.
Old Navy Rum Truffle
Our discerning customers appreciate that we have taken this traditional favourite and given it a twist with a generous helping of Old Navy Rum and no artificial flavourings.Be aware that we do not ‘boil off’ our alcohol so this is a seriously grown up truffle.
