National Truffle Day

May 2, 2016

National Truffle Day is observed annually on May 2nd.  On this day, the deliciously sweet chocolate truffle gets the spotlight.

This chocolate confectionery is traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate, icing, cocoa powder, chopped nuts or coconut.  The truffle may be filled with other fillings such as cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, fruit, nougat, fudge, toffee, mint, marshmallow or liqueur.

N. Petruccelli of Chambery, France is believed to be the inventor of the chocolate truffle in December 1895.  Truffles became much more popular in 1902 when Prestat Chocolate Shop opened in London.  Prestat still sells “Napoleon III” truffles made to the original recipe.
