Super rich Costco chocolate truffles perfect for Christmas!

So when we went to Costco last time we decided it was time to stock up on all the holiday chocolates they have! Sean was grabbing chocolates left, right and center while I just watched in awe at all the chocolate we were going to be bringing home and most likely consuming (hello 15lbs of jolly weight).
One of the products was these Truffettes De France Chocolate Truffles.
We tried these the other night and if you’re a sweet chocolate fan you’ll really like these. They are super rich! I had 1.5 and was like “okay I’m good”. Sean had…maybe 10.5? Haha.
They’re creamy, very sweet, smooth, super chocolaty and they melt in your mouth and hands so they’re a bit messy. They’re a milk chocolate truffle dusted in cocoa powder so you get a bit of a powdery taste.
The cocoa powder adds the slightest hint of bitterness but not much at all, these are one of the sweeter chocolates I’ve had for sure.
I paid $10.99 Canadian on sale for the box of Truffettes De France chocolate truffles. The regular price is $13.99 Canadian. You get two boxes each 1kg in the box and each 1kg box has two bags of chocolate. That’s a TON of truffles for $10.99 so we’ll definitely be sharing them with family.
These are perfect for the holiday season. I recommend storing them in a cool, dry place. The best before date is over a year and a half from the date we purchased the truffles.
These aren’t low-calorie or healthy. Five truffles is 250 calories, 17 grams of fat, two grams of fibre, 18 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of protein, 30mg of sodium and 17 grams of sugar.
We’ll definitely be finishing one out of the four bags you get of truffles. They’re delicious and really rich but not very health conscious!
Chocolate truffle fan? Do you prefer milk or dark chocolate?

I bought 2 boxes from Costco, kept one and gifted the other. When we opened the box, it contained 2 pouches with liquid choc inside. No instructions can be found in the box. I tried UTube but it did not provide much info about what to do with them. Very disappointed that I wasted my money. Buyers – BEWARE!!!
Oh no! I would return them.
I bought this product on the open shelves in the supermarket, stored it in a cupboard at room temperature until Christmas Day. Opened it to find only a sea of melted chocolate. Then saw on the box that it should be kept at below 68F, 20C. This info. should be emblazoned on the package! I don’t want a refund, I simply placed the package in the refrigerator and serve it as chunks of chocolate. Too sweet and slightly greasy. Never again!
Not a fan. They’re essentially a brownie drenched in dark cocoa powder. Someone would always bring them to work. They were palatable but nothing special. I’d rather eat a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or Godiva Sea Shells instead.
Love these. My daughter also loves them. A friend in Hawaii first Christmas gifted a box to me last year and I am hooked. So happy to find them at my neighborhood Costco.
Just opened a box of these to put out on the table. People coming in 2 hours. The whole bag was glommed together! I was able to pry off 6 out of the two bags! So disappointed. I will try melting the rest that are a solid brick into a chocolate fondu.🙁
They are out, but they changed the packaging and they are more expensive. https://www.costco.com/truffettes-de-france-cocoa-truffles-16-oz%2c-4-pack.product.100783067.html
They are in stores now!
Here’s a quick tip: Take a mug of milk, warm it in the microwave (personally I found 2 minutes is best with my oven) then slip in 4 of these truffles and microwave for 30 sec more. We use a little battery operated milk frother to stir and aerate the cocoa. Yum!
That’s an amazing idea! I will definitely try this
These are the best truffles we have ever tasted. We gave them out as gifts last Christmas and they were a huge hit. We will buy them again and again. My only question is when do they hit the stores!
I bought these from Costco last year (hmm, around Christmas time) intending them as gifts. I always “preview” my food gifts. I am not a fan of chocolate particularly, but i do cook with dark or unsweetened chocolate. After tasting one of irregularly shaped morsels, I was hooked!!. Not too sweet and 2 or three pieces are more than filling and satisfying. Long story shortened: went back to Costco, tripled my original order. Gave out 1 1/2 of my purchase, to rave reviews. I just finished the last bag and now I am on a mad hunt to replenish my stash. Praying that this is a seasonal item at Costco so I can do so. No problem with melting or sticking to the box. They are oddly shaped, true and the cocoa dusting can be messy. Small price to pay and Costco sells paper napkins. PS delicious with ice cream and raspberry sauce or liquor.
Hey Hillary! I see these at Christmas every year and they’ve been around since I was a teenage so I bet they’ll be back this year! They’re delicious!
On Sale now! https://www.costco.com/truffettes-de-france-cocoa-truffles-16-oz%2c-4-pack.product.100783067.html
I am so glad I see your post. This chocolate use to be my mom favorite and I use it in my backing, coating my cakes or make hot chocolate for my family. I bought it every year until I noticed is something wrong with it and does not melting it anymore. When I read the ingredients I was in shock and I noticed they are now fabricated in Canada! I will never again buy this artificial truffle. I prefer to buy smaller amount from European stores ,higher price and real quality.
wish they are available year round and not just in costco
On sale now 4lbs $19.97
$11 bucks for 4.4 lbs of fine chocolate is ridiculously priced. They should be that much for a half pound. Go to a chocolatier in Belgium or France and see what comparable chocolates sell for. I’m thinking about buying 20 boxes and storing them in a cool dry place come Christmas.
They’re a great gift!
Send to my daughter, want these for x-mas, her email is Socorock922@aol.com
Love these! My boss brought in some she had picked up at Christmas and for dark chocolate they were very delicious! (And I’m not a fan of dark chocolate.)
I’m looking for some to buy now and stumbled across this page. Figured I’d leave my two cents worth. Now, off to find my truffles….
They’re back every Christmas at Costco but I hope you don’t have to wait that long, good luck on your hunt!
I tried this a few times at our Xmas work office party. The cocoa dusting just makes them really messy to eat. I didn’t find them sweet either. I think it’s more oriented to those who like dark chocolate (yuk), lol. BTW. Did you notice the carb count of these? They’re only slightly higher than the Keto chocolate brownies.
