Teuscher for Two
A fabulous VP of sales for Frette, the purveyors of luxury bedding, tipped me off to Teuscher champagne truffles in the early 1990’s. Ironically, she used to eat them in bed. The dreamy Swiss confections have been a classic since 1947 thanks to Adolf Teuscher, Sr., the man himself. The delicate truffle is made of fresh cream, butter and chocolate. Each is filled with cream champagne surrounded by a dark chocolate ganache, enrobed in milk chocolate and lightly dusted with confectioner’s sugar. The quaint box of two is the perfect little something to leave on your lover’s pillow.
