This is how my Christmas classics look after the next step. Now any clearer? An extra tip: they are originally from Italy.

And that is so last year when the chocolate truffles were round!

These are my this year’s innovation: square truffles of cooked wine and pear with dark Madagascar chocolate with cocoa nibs.

Anybody familiar with vin cuit (cooked wine), with pears and apples and NOT wine? This is a traditional autumn delicacy in western, French speaking Switzerland.

Tomorrow more on the Italian speciality!
