This delicious treat came into my life by way of a good friend. For a recent celebration, my friend was picking up a cake (gluten-full) from Milk Bar. She wasn’t expecting to stumble upon a gluten-free item, but saw the truffles in the store. While I wasn’t there myself, the story goes that she asked the associate behind the counter about the Gluten Free B’Day Truffles. The employee not only recommended the treat, but said that many customers who aren’t gluten-free love them so much that they frequently purchase them over other gluten-full items. She was sold, and picked up a box of 3 for me.
Later that night as my friends were gathered, the cake was presented, and I was given my special gluten-free dessert. As I took my first bite I was instantly hooked! Birthday cake truffles are not something that would typically appeal to me, but after tasting these, I adjusted my thinking. I immediately raved about the one bite of truffle I had taken, which lead to the story being shared about how much those who eat gluten enjoy them. This piqued my other friends’ interest, and after some negotiation, I reluctantly cut one of the truffles into pieces to share. Not surprisingly, my friends were all in agreement, these truffles are great! The truffles have a soft and delicious cookie dough-like inside with a harder shell on the outside. The bright sprinkles found throughout not only provide a fun pop of color, but add to the texture.
While I don’t live that close to a Milk Bar, I was excited to learn that the truffles are available for purchase on their website (linked below). I highly recommend checking them out next time you are in the mood with a sweet gluten-free treat.
