A couple stood ahead of me in line, holding hands, and perusing the case of brightly decorated chocolate treats. They stood there a few minutes, pointing at different plates of truffles, and delegating which ones to box up and bring home. Once they moved over to the cash register to pay for their treats, the case was in full site, displaying more than twenty different flavors of delicately painted deities. My mouth started to water and I realized I was not in any ordinary chocolate shop. I stepped foot into Frederick’s beloved, award-winning chocolate boutique, The Perfect Truffle.
After too much time trying to pick just two from all of the mouth-watering options, I chose to savor the Irish Coffee truffle dusted with powdered sugar, and the award-winning Passion Fruit Dark Chocolate truffle, decorated with white and red hearts. After paying and making my way back to the car, I could barely wait to turn on the ignition before trying the hand-painted truffles. I popped the Irish Coffee in my mouth and immediately melted into the dreamy Jamison Irish Whiskey and Coffee ganache center. After licking my fingers clean, I tried the Passion Fruit. My taste buds encompassed everything from the rich dark chocolate to the real passion fruit center. It took all I had not to go back in for two more to take home.
Whether you are satisfying your own sweet tooth or sending a treat to someone special, these rich truffles are sure to deliver a unique chocolate experience unlike anywhere else. In fact, we loved our chocolates so much that now we wish to share with you! The Perfect Truffle is located at Everedy Square in Downtown Frederick.
