These Orange Cocoa Truffles have all the same incredible and superior qualities as anything La Confiteria Delaviuda offers. Bite into pieces of luscious, creamy balls of dark chocolate, dusted with cocoa powder. These truffles are chocolatey, with that hint of bitterness, and notes of zesty orange. Because Delaviuda only uses the highest quality ingredients, its texture is smooth, and will melt in your mouth.
The Delaviuda Orange Cocoa Truffles go great with a good cup of strong coffee. If you want to enjoy it with a glass of wine, it’s perfect with a Moscato or a Riesling, or any red dessert wine.
Manuel Lopez and Maria Rojas started Delaviuda in 1927, which is derived from the Spanish word “de la viuda,” or “of the widow.” When Manuel died, Maria was left in charge of the company’s expansion. It carries on the family tradition of artisan production by using historic recipes and adhering to the same high-quality standards as always. Because of its humble beginnings and dedication to the craft, La Confiteria Delaviuda has maintained its status as the top confectionery business in the world.
Store your chocolates in a cool, dark place, ideally between 18 to 24°C. You can use the refrigerator, but place the chocolate in an airtight container to keep the moisture and humidity out—and retain its full range of flavors, of course!
