When I saw the trick or treat truffles by Moonstruck I just knew that I needed to try them. Our previous experience with Moonstruck revealed a chocolate bar packed with flavor and a powerful experience. The opportunity to try 4 different truffles that were amazingly unique in appearance was too tempting to pass up.
I loved the different colors of the truffles. I loved the added color to bring out the designs. You could not get much more Halloween than these truffles shapes and colors. However, when it came to the tasting, we were a bit disappointed.
The Creme Brulee Werewolf truffle appeared to be covered in milk chocolate with a creme brulee filling. The chocolate tasted waxy and the filling that followed was sweet but almost sour as well. The texture of the truffle was smooth which you know I am very much a fan of.
I was excited for the Peanut Butter Ghost truffle… but it was not much better either. The white chocolate was not bad, but I did not care for the peanut butter they paired it with. The truffle overall was smooth in texture, but the peanut butter seemed a bit more sweet than peanut flavor.
The Popping Praline Mummy truffle was definitely a bit better. The truffle also had a waxy texture at the beginning and a big surprise after that. They were not kidding about the popping praline. The taste is pleasantly sweet and it really pops. Do they put that rock pop candy in it? No idea but it was definitely a different experience than I have ever had before.
The Blood Orange Vampire truffle was my husbands favorite. It was a good mix of chocolate and orange all the way through. Personally I would prefer a little bit more chocolate in the flavor balance here, but it was not bad.
Sorry Moonstruck. I definitely still plan on checking out more chocolate… and hopefully more truffles too.
Have a good weekend everyone! Can you believe the chocolate party is 2 weeks from today? Yikes!
