What is a truffle? A truffle is a confection made of a chocolate ganache center, coated in cocoa powder, icing sugar or other ingredients. The origin of the truffle is widely attributed to the French pastry chef, N. Petruccelli, who created the first modern-day truffle in 1895. However, there are records of similar chocolate treats being served in Europe as far back as the 1700s. The traditional truffle filling is a rich combination of chocolate and cream. The mixture is melted and then allowed to cool, forming a thick paste that is then shaped into balls and coated with a variety of ingredients. 


Truffles grew in popularity throughout the twentieth century, especially after a prestigious chocolatier in London called Prestat began producing them in 1902. Since then, truffles have grown to be a popular gourmet treat enjoyed by people all over the world.
