Chocolate Bliss Truffles

A woman sitting in the lotus position with her legs crossed.Life passes by in the blink of an eye, appreciate the sweet moments.

Is there a right or wrong way to taste chocolate? Not sure but be sure to slow down, eat it mindfully as chocolate makes people happy.

As you take a bite of this truffle and move the chocolate slowly in your mouth savoring the feeling, you will begin to taste the flavor beyond the first bitter cocoa taste. I love a nice organic pinot noir with these truffles; it is a Zen moment for me.
