Sees Chocolate in Chicago has a maple walnut truffle that is on my copycat bucket list. The maple filling is a maple buttercream, made with butter, powdered sugar, and flavoring. You mix in some toasted walnuts and then dip the truffles in chocolate.
These may not look like the original, but they sure do taste like them. I’m a little scared that I know how to make these now. And that I always have the ingredients to make them on-hand. Sugar highs, every day, for sure.
Happy National Maple Syrup Day!
