We love creating custom chocolates for our clients. When Con’Olios Oils & Vinegars called asking us to create truffles with their balsamic vinegars, we were more than ecstatic. Then I walked into their quaint store in the Arboretum and fell even more in love.
Con’Olios is owned by Jeff & Tabatha, and their passion for quality olive oils and balsamic vinegars is definitely apparent in their products. Their 18 year old aged balsamic rivals the bottle of Tuscan balsamic I carried back from Italy – and only use for special occasions.
Throughout Italy, balsamic vinegars are often used in dessert courses, some as simple as a balsamic reduction over sweetened ricotta, ice cream, or strawberries.
We created handmade chocolate truffles with three of Con’Olios’ balsamic vinegars.
18 Year Aged Balsamic
Dark chocolate & cream blended with their aged Modena vinegar creating a sweet chocolate with a its sweet and sour finish
Dark chocolate & cream infused with their espresso vinegar, creating an amazingly complex truffle, with layers of chocolate, espresso, and dark roasted coffee
Dark chocolate & cream mixed with medium tart balsamic and bits of dried strawberries for added texture
