“ Brand: Prestat / Type: Truffle „
With a price tag of around £9.99 for a box of these truffles, they are not an everyday buy (for the majority of us that is).
The packaging is beautiful. A pretty pink box with gold swirls and gold and pink writing. Prestat is a well-known chocolate maker, who I believe have the title of chocolate maker to the Royals. But hey, don't quote me on that. The box lid is large and slides off to reveal a deep box lined with pink tissue and a plastic casing for the actual truffles.
The truffles are roughly the size of a 10p piece, and are a pale pink colour with a coating of ivory dust. They are absolutely beautiful, and smell divinely of sweet chocolate and booze.
The outer shell is made of chocolate and is thick and crunchy, very substantial to bite into. The chocolate is not a dark or milk variety but more of a white chocolate taste. I cannot taste any food dye that may have been used to get the pink colour.
The middle of the chocolates are filled with a pink ganache that tastes heavenly of champagne. It is not overpowering like liqueur chocolates, but delicate and smooth.
These are incredibly moorish but after a couple you will feel slightly naughty as they are very tasty, and quite rich. I have only ever eaten two at a time and I am a real chocolate fiend.
These make a fantastic gift, the beautiful packaging, and the lovely taste will not disappoint anyone. A real treat for special occasions.
