Yesterday I was watching a popular talk show. The host was interviewing a celebrity and asked her then“which snack is your favorite dessert?” She answered without any hesitation, "Chocolate Truffles."

I love food. However, I have never tasted it before. What is "chocolate truffles"? How does it look like? Does it taste really good? What is the difference betwween chocolate truffles and other chocolate?

Do you have any idea about where I can buy chocolate truffles with authentic flavor in Beijing? Which brand can you recommend?

My mom's favorite is chocolate. I really want to buy nice chocolate truffels as the Chinese New Year's gift for her. Looking forward to your help.

A chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate, icing sugar, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts (typically hazelnuts, almonds or coconut), usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape. Other fillings may replace the ganache: cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, almonds, berries, or other assorted sweet fruits, nougat, fudge, or toffee, mint, chocolate chips, marshmallow, and, popularly, liqueur.

Their name derives from the usual shape they take as the word 'truffle' derives from the Latin word tuber, meaning "swelling" or "lump", which later became tufer.

Truffles are sometimes made with various alcohol flavorings. This includes truffles flavored with vodka, rum, wine, brandy, and even beer.

If you really want to buy take enough money with you, 100g of good quality is at least 50 kuai.
