Booze as Muse

1. Euphoria Oregon Blueberry Wine Truffle 

Made with a locally produced fruit wine, this chocolate truffle is rich, decadent and bursts with blueberry flavor.
2. Lillie Belle Margarita Bon-Bon 
Don Julio tequila, fresh Key limes and white chocolate create the fresh ganache that is then poured inside a dark chocolate cup. A salted rim completes the creative confection.
3. Ladybug Vodka Truffle 
Swirls of edible blue paint decorate the top and sides of this sweet yet rich truffle infused with just the right amount of vodka.
4. Tamami Mt. Hood Truffle 
Easy to conquer a mountain when it is filled with dark chocolate rum ganache, surrounded by a crunchy layer, some caramel, coated with another layer of rum ganache and topped with glittered white chocolate.
5. Melting Pot Pinot Noir & Cherry Truffle
Don’t let the unassuming appearance fool you, this truffle is a decadent treat for wine and non-wine chocolate lovers everywhere.
6. Lillie Belle Gin Martini Bon-Bon
Bombay Sapphire Gin in a white chocolate ganache infused with wild Oregon juniper berries creates this tangy treat complete with a teeny, tiny chocolate olive on top. 
7. Branson’s Raspberry Chambord Truffle 
Chambord liqueur brightens the semi-sweet ganache with a kiss of raspberry.
8. Ladybug Rum Truffle
Dwarfing the rest of the chocolates, this colorful, paint-splattered truffle integrates dark chocolate and smooth rum. Yum.
9. Melting Pot Merlot & Raspberry TruffleThis hand-dipped chocolate needs no fancy sprinkles or molds. What’s inside is what matters, and the inside is delicious and pairs perfectly with Pinot Noir.  
10. Euphoria Pinot Gris Truffle 
Local Oregon Pinot Gris and white chocolate blend to make a decidedly delicious wine country confection.
11. Branson’s Pacific Rum Truffle
Bull Run Distilling Company (Portland) Pacific Rum gives this chocolate a taste experience of coconut without a flake in sight.
12. Tamami Port Dessert Wine Ganache
Local Port-style wine marries premium dark chocolate for a melt-in-your-mouth experience and a pretty package.
