B.T. McElrath Artisan Chocolates

Sister Of Google Earth Evangelist (SOGEE) just got back from Minneapolis and she brought back some B.T. McElrath artisan chocolates for me.

According to their website, they are trying to "create a WOW! experience" every time you taste one. I think they've achieved that. Their truffles are extremely interesting and very good.

This one combines passion fruit mousse with layers of white and 60% dark chocolate. It's amazing. I could eat half a dozen in minutes with no problem. It tastes ten times as good as it looks and it's very pretty.
I haven't tried this one yet, but it's a kaffir lime truffle with coconut and ginger.

This is certainly the cutest truffle and it has a very unusual and delicious taste. It's dark chocolate with a soft chocolate center, flavored with zinfandel and aged balsamic (vinegar?).

It's all I can do to keep myself from finding out what the remaining three taste like, but this will give me something to look forward to, tomorrow night.

Thank you, SOGEE!

  1. Wow, I'm glad I didn't know those were hanging around on your desk. Kaffir lime with coconut and ginger? Those are just about my three favorite ingredients in the whole world (is it a surprise I love Thai food?) Hope you enjoyed them! And I hope GEE got some too, in exchange for her child-minding heroics.
