Yesterday the husband and I drove to Telluride for the day. We took the scenic route there, which took about three hours, and enjoyed a few sights along the way. That's good, because once we got to Telluride we realized that we were there right in the middle of their off season, and even most of the shops that are normally open during the off season are closed on Sundays!
But three shops were open--two clothing stores and a place called Telluride Truffle. And let me tell you, this shop made the whole trip worthwhile.
I have recently cut way back on my gratuitous sugar intake, but that wasn't going to stop me from trying this bad boy, known as the Timberline truffle, with an orange and white chocolate center covered in milk chocolate. It was quite possibly the best thing I've ever eaten. Ever.
The husband chose quite an assortment for himself, including the Class 5 truffle (decorated to look like a little person skiing down the slopes--cute!), which is bittersweet chocolate and raspberry.
And this little cutie, the Spiral, which is Grand Marnier and milk chocolate.
He also helped himself to an assortment of their gourmet chocolates.
If you're looking for a great gift for a candy snob, or even for a corporate client or someone you really, really like, you can buy your own Telluride Truffle online here, and they'll ship it for you. You won't be disappointed!
