Today is National Truffles Day! Bacon and chocolate may be a passing fad in some peoples minds, but I think it is more than just a novelty. It’s a classic pairing. The smokey, salty Bacon balanced with a chocolate that is neither too dark or too sweet makes for a sophisticated flavor combination, perfect after dinner with a glass of tawny port or a snifter of warm cognac. The key is in the texture, these truffles are smooth with just a little sugary Bacon crunch. If you love the Bacon & chocolate combo, you've got to try these!!
