When Barry Callebaut first revealed ruby chocolate over two years ago, it was a groundbreaking moment in culinary history. It was the first new natural color for chocolate in more than 80 years, and was sure to inspire culinary innovation in the following years.
That innovation continues with the newest offering from Delysia Chocolatier. The company, which has been recognized as a top chocolatier in the Americas, has introduced artisan chocolate truffles handcrafted using ruby chocolate in the United States.
These one-of-a-kind pink chocolate truffles are made with the ruby cacao bean from South America. The Delysia Chocolatier Ruby Chocolate Truffle Collection uses ethically sourced, fresh ingredients to create an array of traditional, savory, and spicy flavor profiles that showcase the versatility and beauty of ruby cacao.
The collection features Classic, Sparkling, and Spice Ratnanayaka versions of the truffle. The Classic ruby chocolate truffle highlights its fruitiness and fresh, tart notes. The Sparkling ruby chocolate truffle features sparkling rosé wine infused into rich chocolate ganache and blended with rose petals and dried strawberries for a sweetened, floral finish. The Spice Ratnanayaka chocolate truffle is a blend of garam masala, smoked paprika, adobe peppers, and a proprietary spice blend infused with a hint of citrus. Its unique spices balance the sweet ganache with a pack of heat.
The debut of Delysia’s Ruby Chocolate Truffle Collection coincides with the evolution of the Delysia tasting room and culinary center. The SAVOR: Chocolate Tasting Experience, which begins Saturday, October 19 starting with the ruby collection, engages all five senses with a guided chocolate tasting.
