Archaeologists have confirmed that the Aztecs used chocolate as currency, a practice that ceased after the stock market both crashed and melted. Collect some rich, creamy interest with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a five-piece box of truffles, a 16-ounce package of dark-chocolate ganache, a truffle-cooking kit, and a cup of hot chocolate at Cellar Door Chocolates (a $30 total value).
Featured in Today’s Woman magazine for her confectionary prowess, Cellar Door’s boss chocolatier Erika Chavez-Graziano mingles gourmet E. Guittard Vintage Chocolate with her handmade recipes into an assemblage of truffles, truffles, and more truffles. A quintet assortment (a $6.50 value) lets you pick and choose according to your preference in creamy innards, crisp exterior shells, and Super Mario Kart drivers. The cayenne-pepper truffle kindles a spicy flavor furnace inside a 55% dark-chocolate exoskeleton dappled with pepper, and the champagne truffle harbors bubbly spirits within a white-, milk-, and dark-chocolate capsule. To add a little Kentucky flavor, toss back a bourbon truffle served in a shot glass of bittersweet chocolate crowned with pecans, and save the other four slots for espresso, peppermint, raspberry, and hazelnut.
To help patrons make the most clear-minded truffle picks, Cellar Door silences the screams of sweet teeth with a steaming cup of hot chocolate (a $5 value). A 16-ounce package of dark-chocolate ganache (a $16 value) and truffle-cooking kit (a $2.50 value) lets DIY desserters fashion their own truffles at home without the aid of a hunchbacked, spoon-licking henchman.
