Truffle Collection

You are cordially invited to partake in a new taste experience. Cru Cacao has created these decadent 100% RAW organic vegan truffles for your pure enjoyment. The truffles in this collection include:

English Rose Pink - The beautiful and fragrant roses of Kew Gardens have inspired us to create this royal truffle. Dark chocolate ganache infused with rose oil, Tahitian vanilla, and Bolivian rose salt, adorned with adried pink rose petal.

Tundra – Brrrrr...the temperature plummets as you are transported to the arctic where a cacao butter blizzard has just covered this dark chocolate peppermint ganache truffle with Tahitian vanilla and Himalayan salt.

The Olmec - Named for the first people to cultivate cacao. Dark chocolate ganache with ancho, morita, guallio, and pasillo chilies. With hints of fresh cinnamon and Tahitian vanilla. Strong, sexy and spicy this was the first truffle we created. Adorned with twenty-three carat edible gold leaf.

Francesco - Named after Francesco Redi, the poet, physician, philologist, and chocolatier who invented the renowned jasmine chocolate of the Tuscan Court. Dark chocolate ganache with jasmine oil, Tahitian vanilla, and cinnamon. Adorned with jasmine petals.

Koh Samui - A small beautiful island off the coast of Thailand with white sand beaches and palm trees swaying in the breeze. Dark chocolate ganache infused with curry, algarroba (mesquite) , dusted with mango powder.

George Washington - We here at Cru would never chop down a cherry tree! Dark chocolate ganache with algoroba, maca and Himalayan salt. Decorated with a sweet plump sundried Ranier cherry from Washington State.

Lavande- Lavender oil infused dark chocolate ganache with Bolivian rose salt and Tahitian vanilla. Adorned with dried lavender flowers.

Macaco- Portuguese for monkey. This sweet and playfull truffle is made with dark chocolate banana ganache , topped with a raw jungle pecan.

Pacal Votan- Named in honor of the Cacao Shaman and Mayan Priest King. This is our darkest and most rich chocolate ganache filled truffle with Tahitian vanilla, maca and Himalayan salt, adorned with raw cacao nibs.

Tangerine Dream - A sweet citrus dark chocolate ganache with tangerine oil, orange oil, Tahitian vanilla, dusted with Mineola Tangelo zest. A classic combination revamped.

- The Balinese god of love seduces with dark chocolate ganache bursting with lemon grass, ginger, Balinese long pepper, and a dusting of lime zest.

At Cru Cacao, we handcraft luxurious yet healthy chocolates. We believe that one cannot improve on what Mother Nature has to offer. Our goal is to create the most luscious and delectable Raw vegan chocolates ever to grace the palate, fusing our sensibilities of flavor and purity into each one of our chocolate explorations. Our artisan chocolates are made by hand with attention to each detail along the way. Each truffle is scooped, rolled, dipped, and
adorned with its own unique topping by a skilled chocolatier. Raw organic vegan foods are the future of the culinary arts. We strive to share the gift of health through gourmet food and chocolates, allowing you to nourish your body while simultaneously helping to heal the planet.
