This week I made a stop at my favorite chocolate store, to pick up my favorite truffle that is only sold around the holidays. The Snowman Truffle from Lindt. Mmmmmmm..... It's a heavenly mixture of a milk chocolate shell, filled with creamy white chocolate.

Interestingly enough, one night Mark and I watched "How it's Made" and they showed how Lindt makes their delish truffles. I also learned that white chocolate is not really chocolate, but coco butter. And the inside of a truffle is made in w ay that it melts quicker than the shell, giving it that cool, yet creamy texture.
