Teuscher Champagne Truffles

Chocolates are a time honored holiday tradition. But Teuscher Champagne Truffles raise the simple gift of chocolate to new heights. The creamy champagne center is simply unequaled by other truffles. The outer shell is dusted with powdered sugar and each bite is heavenly. Made in Switzerland and flown fresh to their US stores each week, these sinfully delicious confections are the ultimate chocolate gift. http://www.teuscher.com/home.html

In my family, a trip to New York always required a quick stop at Teuscher's for the ultimate in chocolate. They now have a smattering of stores from Portland to Atlanta (http://www.teuscher.com/locator-north-america.html), making this treat more readily available. They also take orders and ship. http://www.teuscherfifthavenue.com/ourshoppe.php

Alas, the price is as sinful as the truffles are delicious. If you're lucky enough to live in a city with a Teuscher store, the two truffle box for $6.75 makes a nice stocking stuffer. A gift box of 16 champagne truffles weighs in at $39.00. A lovely gift, though, for the gourmet who has everything.
