Uncle Truscott’s Classic American Confections
The art of chocolate has been elevated by today’s chocolatiers into something very magical. The creation of handmade chocolates requires particular attention to detail because it requires exact temperatures and timing, particularly since chocolate burns easily. Uncle Truscotts is a family-owned and operated premium candy business manufacturing handcrafted chocolate truffles and almond butter toffee in Warren, RI.
The company is the brainchild of Johnson and Wales professor Peter Kelly and his wife Katie Kelly. They use quality chocolates, distinctive flavorings and locally supplied dairy and nuts to create their delicious confections.
I received a sample of the handmade truffles and almond butter toffee. The truffle box featured one of each flavor – milk and dark chocolate, caramel and espresso.
The truffles are rich and decadent. Each one was delicious. We savored them.
I will admit that I’m usually not a big fan of toffee because it’s usually sticky and not good for one’s dental work. But Uncle Truscott’s toffee was different that my preconceived perceptions!
The large shards of this toffee were rich and buttery. It was not a sticky mess.
I shared it with some work friends who loved it and appreciated the handmade treat.
Uncle Truscott’s classic American chocolate truffles and almond butter toffee would make exquisite gifts for anyone special on your list for any holiday or celebration or as a special treat for yourself. You can purchase the confections at a handful of retailers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island or online through the Uncle Truscott’s website.
All who are lucky enough to try them will treasure Uncle Truscott’s handmade chocolates.
