the twelve treats of Christmas: day 11

On the eleventh day of Christmas, orenji catering made for me...
By now, faithful readers, you know of our love of Belgian chocolate... and one of the best ways to highlight it's deliciously deep and balanced flavors is through hand-crafted truffles.
Here at orenji catering, we prefer to make Swiss truffles-- a smooth combination of fine chocolate, cream, butter, and flavorings. They are the creamiest and densest of the truffle varieties, melting quickly on the tongue and releasing their flavor.

For the holiday season 2007, we prepared four varieties of classic Swiss truffles: bittersweet chocolate with ancho chili rolled in dark cocoa; white chocolate and pumpkin spice covered with graham; milk chocolate and garam masala sprinkled with white chocolate flakes; and bittersweet chocolate and raspberry essence.

Each truffle was a deliciously bite-sized taste of luxury... We look forward to hand-rolling more truffles in 2008, as well as experimenting with flavor combinations. When it comes to truffles, the more the merrier!
Check back tomorrow for our number one treat of Christmas 2007!
