It’s a long way to Ireland, but this truffle will whisk you off to the land of the shamrock.
You’ll be warmed by the smooth liqueur flavor as the cream envelops your tongue with nuances of vanilla, caramel, and honey. To quote an Irishman, one taste and you will have “miles and miles of Irish smiles for many golden happy hours.”
About Birnn Chocolates of Vermont:
Charles Birnn began creating chocolate confections in 1915. For over 30 years he delighted customers in Brooklyn, NY and central New Jersey. When Charles’ son, Edward Birnn, joined the business, he opened 11 candy shops in Pennsylvania and New Jersey during the ‘50s and ‘60s. In 1991, Jeff and his brother Bill Birnn, moved their truffle endeavor to Vermont to get closer to the dairy cows (and skiing!). There, they changed the name to Birnn Chocolates of Vermont and began focusing exclusively on making truffles.
Jeff’s daughter, Julia, and her husband, Mel Fields, continued the family tradition and came into the business as full-time employees in 2010. In 2016 the family business transitioned ownership to the fourth generation. Julia and Mel are humbled by the opportunity to continue crafting truffles using the family’s 100-year-old recipes
