Editorial: Making Truffles with Jessica Foster + A Giveaway

Kelly  |  October 29

In honor of Halloween and the ridiculous amount of sweets I’ll be eating this week, I thought I’d highlight my absolutely favorite chocolatier on the planet, Jessica Fosters Confections. I’ve been obsessed with Jessica’s choclate well, for years now, and I wanted to capture her art in action. Josh Gruetzmacher was in town for a wedding and captured these gorgeous images on film…

Jessica specialized in handmade truffles indused with a variety of unique and unexpected flavors.

Some of my favorite flavors? Milk chocolate madras curry, and dark chocolate earl gray…

Unlike most chocolate you buy at the store, all of Jessica’s chocolates are based on 3 simple ingredients, cream, butter and chocolate.

Aside from traditional truffles, Jessica also makes mint infused truffle sticks that are super refreshing and very addictive (Josh and I may have had a few during the shoot…).

The sticks are made be pouring out white chocolate and letting it set, then the choclate is cut into sticks. The white chocolate sticks are painted with milk chocolate and tossed in granulated sugar.

On the market for homemade carmels? How about ones made with no corn syrup? She makes those too. And her carmelized almonds dusted with coco powder are way too good. They never last more that an hour in my house.

Intrigued? Well we’re GIVING AWAY one of Jessica’s 8 piece truffle boxes! Just leave a comment below with your favorite flavor (check out the list here) and we’ll randomly select a winner on Friday, Nov 2nd (contest closes at 5pm PST).
