We LOVE these Alphabet Truffles!
Thorntons started their chocolate journey in Sheffield many years ago, in fact this year they’re celebrating a century. The first shop was opened there by Joseph William Thornton, who, the story goes, handed the keys to his teenage sons Norman and Stanley and said: “Make this the best sweet shop in town!” (And now they’re based in Derbyshire).
There always seems to be a box of Thorntons around – whether it’s a “small thank you” box, a “Happy Birthday” selection or way too many naughty chocs at Christmas, but we think these Alphabet Truffles really top the lot.
There are 22 chocolates in each box (which can be giftwrapped with a card) and all you have to do is choose the letters, creating your own personal message with the website’s “truffle typewriter”.
Have a go here – you won’t be able to resist it…
