Cioccolatta Carlotta Tartufi Dolci

The Piedmont is an area of northern Italy known for its agricultural products. It's also the home of chocolate manufacturer Ferrero, so when I found these chocolates in a local Italian grocer, I had high hopes. I was disappointed.

Tartufi dolci are "sweet truffles," therefore not the fungus. I wondered at first if these were simply old, but the nuts inside were fabulously crunchy, indicating their freshness. Basically, these truffles were chocolately, but quite dry, with flakes breaking off at every bite.
