I would be sad today. I really would. Why? Because today’s post features the last of the chocolate from my haul from the Teuscher Beverly Hills boutique.
But I’m not sad. Because I just picked up more Teuscher in Chicago.
I have a problem. But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about Teuscher truffles. Like this Bailey’s truffle.
The couverture features two layers, a smooth milk chocolate coating with a creamy flavor and hints of caramel on the very outside, and an interior layer of dark chocolate that offers a bit of a coffee taste. It’s an interesting take on couverture.
I was a bit fearful of the interior, as boozy chocolates generally don’t appeal to me. Fortunately, there was just a slight bit of alcohol in the sugary interior, which was just a bit runny, but not enough to turn the piece into a complete disaster. I enjoyed the balance of sweet and bitter and the slight alcohol kick. This piece may work its way into my regular rotation.
One last piece from this box: the Josephine, which featured milk chocolate and crushed almonds.
The milk chocolate exterior is creamy, and seems to feature a bit of a coffee flavor.
Inside, the perfectly crisp almonds offer a satisfying crunch with the ganache that features caramel undertones. The exterior and interior meld together perfectly, which makes nibbling at this chocolate easy.
Except that it’s so delicious that you’ll want to gobble it all up at once.
Do it. Just make sure you have another half dozen of these on hand. You’ll want them.
Have you had chocolate with Bailey’s in it?
