Itâ€™s National Truffle Day! According to legend, a man named
Louis Dufour invented the chocolate truffle in ChambÃ©ry, France in 1895.
A few years later, Antoine Dufour opened the Prestat Chocolate Shop in
London. Historians believe this chocolate shop was solely responsible
for popularizing chocolate truffles in England (and beyond), but the
relationship between Louis and Antoine is uncertain. Fun fact: Roald
Dahl, the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, was a huge fan of Prestat truffles!
The first recipes for chocolate truffles appeared in the 1920s. Today
there are three main typesâ€”American, European, and Swiss. Each type of
truffle has a slightly different twist, but they all include a creamy
ganache filling and a topping like cocoa, coconut, or drizzled
To celebrate National Truffle Day, stop by your local candy shop and pick up a variety of delicious chocolate truffles!
