Champagne Truffles @ Teuscher, Bangsar Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur

pretty boxes and chocolate in a row

Upset because Beyonce postponed her concert in Kuala Lumpur this weekend? My advice.....console yourself with some champagne truffles from Teuscher. Flown in from Zurich, these freshly made chocolates make life a lot brighter after you have popped one in your mouth.

Available in milk or dark chocolate, within each truffle, there's a soft creamy centre made from Dom Perignon champagne. A soft fluffy dark chocolate ganache covers the champagne centre before it is enrobed in another layer of thicker chocolate coating. Lastly, it is dusted with icing sugar for the milk chocolate variety or cocoa powder for the dark chocolate variety. What makes it unique to the tastebuds - the chocolate has a decadent, soft and almost airy texture, making it easy to bite and indulge in.

These delicate truffles (there's a long list of how to look after them including no direct sunlight) sell out pretty quickly hence it is best to leave your name on the list and the shop can call you, when the supplies come in. Usually they get sold off within one week after they arrive from Switzerland due to their popularity.

As they're freshly made from butter, cream and chocolate, it is best to consume them within 10 days (not a hard task believe me!). Teuscher claims to be the first to have come up with the idea for champagne truffles in 1947. During a heat wave in Zurich, Adolf Teuscher Sr was said to have saw a champagne bucket that inspired him to create a chocolate that has a "fresh and cooling taste".

The quaint little shop in Bangsar Shopping Centre is also a great place for snapping cute little paper crepe animals and characters. As Halloween is just round the corner, there's adorable looking witches, ghosts and even a devil-like figure on display. Aside from the champagne truffles, they also sell various kinds of truffles (spied a wine one), chocolate in various shapes and bars. There's also hot chocolate available with a few tables and chairs on the side for you to indulge in the rich dark beverage. More pictures can be found in my Flickr set.

(Pork free. The chocolates cost around RM68 per 100grams that can get you around 7-8 pieces. It is advised you call ahead to check if they are available, as the truffles sell out very quickly.)

Nice but you should try the bars. They fared better than the truffles because the champagne taste has evaporated.
