Discover your new favorite indulgence - Dark Ephemere Truffles from Dilettante. This dark chocolate delicacy is our signature hand-dipped truffle. Named by the grandfather of our chocolatier, Dana Davenport, the name "Ephemere" is derived from the word "ephemeral" meaning a brief, heavenly experience of intense pleasure. You can be sure that these velvety morsels are divinely rich, just as the name suggests.
What makes these gourmet dark chocolate truffles especially rich is their high cacao percentage; dark chocolate: 54-72%. The exquisite taste of Dilettante's Dark Ephemere Truffles comes from melting bittersweet chocolate with cream and adding a unique ingredient, butter praline. If you are looking for a chocolate that is deep, dark and sophisticated, then Dilettante's Ephemere Dark Chocolate Truffles are just what you've been searching for!
The Bulk 25 Piece Box is perfect for sharing or creating your own party favors!
Here at Dilettante, third-generation Master Chocolatier Dana Taylor Davenport uses master formulas that are selected from the notebooks of Dana's grandfather, Earl Remington Davenport and his great-uncle, Julius Rudolph Franzen, Master Chocolatier and Pastry Chef to the crowned heads of Europe.
Our Chocolate truffles are the most sought-after category in our hand-dipped chocolate line. They reflect our commitment to serious chocolate lovers. Having "more flavor than sweetness" the ephemere chocolate center is perfectly balanced to its bittersweet chocolate shell. Made with pure chocolate, butter & cream, our truffles are hand-dipped in the highest grade couverture. Our Bulk Truffles are packaged in corrugated boxes for safe shipping.
Warm Weather Shipping Policy
Effective May - September for all perishable products
It is very important to us that you receive all of your products at the peak of their perfection. Many of our products are heat sensitive and need special care when shipped in warm weather. This is why during the warmer months of the year we implement our Warm Weather Shipping Policy.
Many of our products are perishable in temperatures above 80°F. To avoid spoilage due to high temperatures, we take special care of your order by chilling each package that may encounter warm temperatures. Your order is shipped with an icepack and special packaging to keep the product(s) at the perfect temperature during shipping.
This protective treatment lasts for only 48 hours under normal conditions. This means that in order for you to receive your perishable products in their best condition, we must restrict the total delivery time to no more than 48 hours. Therefore, if temperatures in your area exceed 80°F, Expedited Shipping must be selected as your shipping option to ensure your product arrives without melting.
All shipments originate from Kent, Washington. Please note that orders are not processed on Weekends or Holidays as our transportation partners are closed on those days. Orders subject to our Warm Weather Shipping Policy only ship Monday through Wednesday via our 2-day Expedited Shipping. Orders placed after 11am Wednesday through Sunday will be held for processing until the following Monday. When your order ships, you will receive an email with the transportation method and tracking number. Please use this information to estimate the delivery date.
Warm weather shipping rates are in effect May through September for all perishable chocolate and non-chocolate products; and may be extended beyond these months depending on location and weather.
Packages left outside in warm areas are likely to suffer heat damage. We strongly encourage all customers who are not at home to receive shipments to have their shipments delivered to a business address.
Questions? Please contact our Customer Service team at: 1-800-800-9490 Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm Pacific Standard Time.
We visited Dilettante this summer as part of a coffee stroll...our guide was wonderful and the chocolates here are awesome.
I haven't lived in Seattle since 1987, but I still get my fix of dark ephemeres every season.
