Lindt is the world’s largest premium chocolate company. The Swiss-based confectioner, which dates back to Zurich in 1845, has a U.S. production facility in New Hampshire. The company maintains quality while producing chocolate in volume, making Lindt Excellence chocolate bars, other bars, and Lindor truffles. Here’s a brief history of Lindt.

Lindor truffles—a round chocolate shell with a liquid chocolatey center—are available year-round in flavors dark, 60% extra-dark, milk, sea-salt milk and white, and flavors: a total of 27 choices, from matcha and mint to coconut and dulce de leche.

Seasonal flavors include Gingerbread, Milk Peppermint Cookie, Snickerdoodle, Snowman (white center, milk shell) and White Peppermint.

Whatever the flavor, when your teeth break into the chocolate shell, the luscious, creamy, melting, center covers your tongue with some emotion between glee and enchantment. It’s a unique sensation in truffledom.

And that’s why any chocolate lover would relish a gift of Lindor truffles.

Holiday chocolate, including a selection of special holiday boxes, is available at retailers nationwide or at LindtUSA.com, in sizes from small to jumbo.
 
The line is certified kosher by KOF-K.
 
 
WAYS TO USE LINDOR TRUFFLES AT HOME

Beyond holiday gifts, Lindor offers year-round opportunities to:

  • FILL your candy bowl throughout the season.
  • CREATE dessert garnishes: to top a cake, cupcake, tartlet.
  • ADD to sundaes or parfaits (chopped or sliced).
  • MELT into coffee and hot chocolate.
  • MAKE no-bake dessert tartlets (adapt this creation from ClimbingGrierMountain.com).
  • USE as place settings or party favors for special dinners.
  • TREAT yourself to a chocolate break.
  •  
     
    DRINKING THE TRUFFLES

    Lindor truffles are not just for eating. You can drink them:

  • Melted into hot milk to create milk chocolate.
  • Melted into hot coffee to create hot mocha.
  • Hot chocolate and coffee Lindor drinks can be shaken with ice for iced hot chocolate and iced mocha; whipped cream optional.
  • As a cocktail or mocktail garnish
  •  
    When we visited the Lindt Outlet Store (here’s a store locator for both Lindt Chocolate Shops and Lindt Outlet Stores), we found a large cafe counter offering the choice of these drinks and more. We dove right in.

    Our recommendation: For a less sweet drink, use two Lindor truffles per 8 ounces of hot milk or coffee. For a sweeter drink, use three truffles. Whisk them in one at a time.

    We haven’t stopped drinking Lindt hot chocolate since!
