Truffle Shots are a mother-daughter invented, patent-pending chocolate truffle (with a twist) that was just voted Favorite Chocolate Truffle at The Big Chocolate Show in New York City. Truffle Shots are unconventional and made by replacing the chocolate shell of a traditional chocolate truffle with a sealed shot glass. In other words, there is ganache, and other yummy truffle fillings, in a shot glass served with a spoon. These are not a liquid (or alcoholic). This way of serving focuses on the essence of a chocolate truffle’s silky smooth ganache filling, without the added texture and flavor of a shell or coating.
The top seller is Caramel Beurre Noisette. I did not get to try this flavor, but it is popular for it's browned-butter caramel with fleur de sel, enveloped in dark chocolate ganache. The butter is browned to a hazelnut color (hence the Beurre Noisette name), which gives the caramel subtle nutty notes.
