Chocolate Marble Truffles

Marble Truffles BoxAs a lover of chocolate and of marbles, I was delighted to stumble upon these marble truffles by French Chef Yves Thuries at my local Costco warehouse. I promptly purchased them as part of an office white elephant gift exchange, secretly hoping I might win them back.

According to the box, Mr. Thuries created these truffles with inspiration from the marbles of his childhood. They are very round and polished, measuring about 15/16". From a marble collector's perspective they resemble a mix between the 19th-century polished foil clay marbles and the more recent Vacor de Mexico "Galaxy" marbles.

It turns out the co-worker who won these truffles was not a big eater of sweets, and the box ended up in the office lunch room. We quickly consumed the delicious chocolates and I managed to keep the box for myself as a new storage container for my 1" marbles.
