Carol Monnerat Artisan Truffles

Carol Monnerat is obsessed with chocolate and we’re the better for it. Her golf ball sized truffles are made in small batches using the finest Belgian chocolate and no artificial anything. A slew of creative flavors are available: (clockwise) Cranberry Pecan, Bourban Pecan, Maple Walnut, Ivory (white chocolate with orange liqueur) and, my favorite, Espresso Jolt. The solution to the Dinner Party Dessert Dilemma?  In the tradition of Great Grandma Gi (see above), I like to cut Carol’s truffles in half and pass the plate around. Find Carol’s truffles at Dagmar’s Desserts in Old Saybrook, Curds and Whey in E. Haddam, Essex Coffee and Tea, JCakes in North Branford, or order and pick up at Ashlawn Farm Coffee in Lyme.
