- C$13 for gourmet truffle centres (C$26.95 value)
Customers receive 350g of ganache—about 40 truffle centres—which are made fresh to order from a secret recipe that uses 100% pure Belgian chocolate. Creamy truffle centres come in milk, white, and dark chocolate, and customers can choose which flavours they get. Craftmychocolate.com recommends using the centres in French truffles or melting them and then piping them into chocolate shells or chocolate molds. See its truffle-making videos here.
Craftmychocolate.com's founders believe that the best way to experience gourmet chocolate is to make it yourself, and it teaches customers how to create fancy chocolates in their own kitchens. The process starts with high-quality dark, white, and milk chocolate made by Belgian artisans. The fair-trade Belcolade chocolate uses 100% cocoa butter and 100% natural vanilla.
Customers can then opt to melt the chocolate and pour it into a mold. These range from elegant bonbons to fun animal and holiday shapes, including santas perfect for National Grandparents' Day. They can also imprint their candies with an elegant pattern using chocolate transfer sheets, which are made in Canada from pure cocoa butter and FDA-certified colourings.
