Ruby Salted Caramel Truffles (Fortnum & Mason) By @SpectreUK

I had to prize these Ruby Salted Caramel Truffles, by Fortnum & Mason, out of Cinabar's cold dead fingers! Not really, but be assured that she wasn't looking when I nabbed the packet. She'd already vaunted how luxurious they were and how they melted in her mouth and blah, blah… serves her right for getting distracted for a few minutes I say. Though we all have to go to loo at some point, it just becomes a battle of attrition. That and feeding her endless cups of tea…

The 155g bag of pink chocolate balls were tied up with a fetching gold Fortum & Mason bow, with the smart printed cardboard label tied on. Posh or what? And what's this; Ruby Chocolate? I thought it was food colouring, but it's a new found naturally occurring cocoa, which is supposed to be a fruity mixture of milk, white and dark chocolate. No wonder these pink truffles were so well guarded. And they really are lush. On first bite these sweet slightly fruity tasting pink chocolate balls burst runny salted caramel into my mouth overloading it with flavours. The salted sweet caramel mixing with the sweet fruitiness of the Ruby chocolate and then a touch of sourness washing around my tastebuds into the aftertaste. Absolutely luxurious pink salty chocolate balls and they're all mine (hang on… that didn't sound right)! I've locked the door from prying fingers… Time to gorge!
