In Southern Italy, cookies are ubiquitous with the Holiday season.  Traditional cookies are baked in every home and visitors would never show up for a Holiday visit without a festive tray of cookies.  The Cucidati truffle takes it's inspiration from a Sicilian fig cookie of the same name.  The cookie wraps a spiced fig filling with tender pastry and it's this same filling of figs, fragrant allspice and cinnamon, candied orange peel, honey and raisins that forms the basis for a rich ganache hand rolled in 61% dark chocolate, finished in pure cocoa powder. The recipe for the original cookies has been handed down through generations and Master Chocolatier Amy Jo produces these special treats once a year during the holidays as an homage to her Sicilian Heritage.

Holiday Gift Option:  12-piece bag ($21)
