Discover your new favorite indulgence - Dark Ephemere Truffles from Dilettante Chocolates. This dark chocolate delicacy is our signature hand-dipped chocolate truffle.
Named by the grandfather of chocolatier Dana Davenport, the appellation "Ephemere" is derived from the word "ephemeral" meaning a brief, heavenly experience of intense pleasure. It describes our proprietary cooking method that unites caramelized butter, sugar, and cream to create a velvety smooth chocolate truffle unlike any you've ever tasted. You can be sure that these velvety morsels are divinely rich, just as the name suggests.
What makes these exquisite gourmet dark chocolate truffles especially rich is their high cacao percentage; we use a flavorful semisweet 63% chocolate.
If you're looking for a chocolate that is deep, dark, and sophisticated, then our Dark Ephemere Truffles are just what you've been searching for. This bulk 25 piece box is perfect for sharing or creating your own party favors.
The exact recipe is a well-guarded secret, but you can be sure that each Ephemere Chocolate Truffle is a little slice of heaven right here on earth.
What's not to like? 25 wonderful dark truffle chocolates. They are DELICIOUS. The perfect balance of taste rich and deep dark chocolate flavor and yet not off putting. Treat yourself.
Note that the box isn't fancy - it's utilitarian, not a pretty 'gift' box. But any true chocolate lover won't care at all. The contents are the star.
I am a long time buyer of the Dark Ephemere chocolates. When Dilettante had their factory on 23 and Cherry, Seattle, I would walk to the store and buy the 'seconds'... Eventually, I had to go to their store on Capitol Hill, but then that closed also. Now I buy direct from the factory. The reason for this long time loyalty is several fold: My patients have had near riots from becoming chocolate snobs about the quality of Dilettante Chocolates; the consistency, quality and reliability of their chocolates has become world renown via the people that demand the dark Ephemeres in my office. They have been given as wedding gifts in million dollar weddings, and for every special occasion I can think of. You can't get a better chocolate.

I have had a personal and professional relationship with this company and this chocolate since their factory was located on 23rd and Cherry Seattle. I would go there to buy 'seconds' and talk to the employees during breaks from graduate school. When I was building my practice, I knew I needed some kind of marketing advantage, so I started a bowl of these ephemera chocolates for a treat for my patients when they left my office.. I tried other flavors but the deep rich dark chocolate was always the favorite! Over the decades of this practice, I have clearly created 'chocolate snobs' in my patients... I'm not ashamed of creating these affectionados! The premium chocolates have moved and changed locations over the years, but the quality has never disappointed me. I only wish the price was the same as those seconds I bought on 23rd and Cherry! but life moves on... chocolate remains.
I have been purchasing these Ephemere Chocolates since the 1990's. I have a bowl of them in my office for my patients, after session. They are exceptional chocolates that my patients have come to expect the quality and expertise of them. I have created 'chocolate snobs'. but that is a good thing! To have quality choices, begins to make a difference in the quality of your life... even if it's just a small deep chocolate truffle...
