So what are the best chocolate truffles? Well that really depends on what type of chocolate truffle you like. Would you prefer them to have a crisp shell, a soft shell; to be made out of white chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate; to be flavoured with the frequently used Marc de Champagne or just ‘plain’? Also there’s the question how much you want to pay as there’s a big difference between cheap chocolate truffles and fine, gourmet or luxury chocolate truffles. Here I explore the options to help you save money and find the best truffles when you buy online and visit chocolate shops.
So here’s a very simple list of my most favourite chocolate truffle brands:
If you’ve got very particular requirements for chocolate truffles and they’ve got to be organic and dairy free as well as taste absolutely fantastic then you must consider Booja Booja which are just totally divine!
Champagne truffles seem to be the most popular version of chocolate truffles these days and it seems that everyone is making them. The most popular seem to be the pink Champagne truffles and Fortnum & Mason (Rosé Champagne Truffles Review) that I’m sure many would like. But if you’re looking for some cheaper options then try Charbonnel et Walker who make a wonderful Champagne Truffle which has a crispy shell but still a very flavoursome truffle centre. And if you’re a Hotel Chocolat fan then you’ve got to check out their Pink Champagne Truffles which are pretty dam good!
The beautiful thing about chocolate truffles is that they come in all sorts of flavours. Prestat do very interesting Orange and Lemon Chocolate Truffles. You can also get some fabulous mint chocolate truffles from Charbonnel et Walker as well some very strange Banoffee Truffles.
Also the William Curley Framboise Truffles were totally fantastic – they’re worth a try!
Now I’m not a big fan of praline chocolates, but I know many are. If you’re also a fan of luxury chocolate brands then consider the Galler Chocolate Truffles.
If you wanted to try something a bit difference then why not consider the offering from Terre à Terre – they’re pretty interesting.
I’ve tried more than my fair share of chocolate truffle selection boxes. Hotel Chocolat and Thorntons lead the way in cost-effective selection boxes for birthday, anniversary and Christmas gifts. But also consider the Godiva Chocolate Truffles Gift Box which wasn’t too bad, if you wanted a quality brand at affordable prices.
If you live in London I can highly recommend the Paul A. Young House Selection which is out of this world!
Definitely give Chocolateque a go! They were fantastic.
I’m yet to review pure white chocolate truffles – I’ve added them to my “to buy list”.
You can get these everywhere, but mainly flavoured. Try Charbonnel et Walker first as they’ll more plain than the others.
I’m just trying to collate recipes so we can all try them at home.
If you make or sell chocolate truffles that are the best, then contact us about getting a review on the site.
