|Look at the size of that truffle! Only at Michel Cluizel.|
See, his $4/piece dark chocolate truffles had absolutely no place in my budget, especially since I had already blown money on rent, a $115 parking ticket, and dinner at Momofuku. But like a total pushover, I gave in.
I settled for the smaller, $2-version as a compromise, and I bought just one. Slowly, I took a bite, and let the cocoa powder rub on my teeth. This is the part where the cocoa content—rich, dark, and boldly-flavored—made my heart race. It wasn't the kind of truffle that tried so hard to be creamy it ended up greasy (ewww!). Instead, the cream was expertly muted with densely-packed chocolate, flaunting a completely decadent texture minus the fluff. Hey, it takes guts to do that—and lots of sexy chocolate wisdom.
Michel Cluizel, you are a man after my heart. And my wallet.
