I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for American Heritage Chocolate. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

American Heritage Chocolate Truffles

We recently came back from our family Thanksgiving trip to Williamsburg, VA. We had a wonderful time walking the old street, learning about history, and shopping in the quaint colonial stores. I noticed that every store we popped into had the American Heritage Chocolate displayed for customers to purchase. American Heritage Chocolate is an authentic historic recipe for chocolate and is made with ingredients that were only available in the 1750’s. This chocolate has a one-of-a-kind flavor that is mildly spicy and slightly sweet. They sell it in different packaging sizes, like bites, blocks, and sticks; as well as a finely grated chocolate drink mix. American Heritage Chocolate is flavored with a blend of spices and ingredients available during colonial times, including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla. I love the flavor which takes me back to how people would have enjoyed chocolate in the colonial era.

Colonial Williamsburg: Where History Comes Alive

Growing up I always dreamed of going to William & Mary and working on the colonial street as a girl of the times, either serving food in the taverns or giving tours of the Capitol. Unfortunately, that never happened. I ended up going to George Mason University instead. My sister, Stefanie, did end up going to William & Mary for her education. She loved it and still visits there often. There is just something about Williamsburg, VA that is truly our family’s home away from home. That is one reason we all met up there for the Thanksgiving holiday. While we were there, we picked up some American Heritage Chocolate to try it out. The bites were really delicious for a quick chocolate satisfaction taste. The other products were great as well. My sister, who is also a contributor on Mama Luvs Books, decided to create a recipe out of some of the American Heritage Chocolate products. She decided to use the block and chocolate drink mix to create some delicious American Heritage Chocolate Truffles, which are perfect to serve at holiday parties. Check out her recipe below.

A delicious mouthful of chocolatey delight can be found in these American Heritage Chocolate Truffles, which are easy to create and sure to please a crowd.
  • 8 ounces American Heritage Chocolate Block, well chopped into small pieces
  • ½ c heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • American Heritage chocolate drink mix (for coating)
  1. In a small, heavy saucepan bring the heavy whipping cream to a simmer.
  2. Place the chopped chocolate in a separate bowl. Pour the whipping cream over the chocolate, add the vanilla, and allow to stand for a few minutes. Stir until smooth.
  3. Allow to cool, then place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove and with a teaspoon roll out balls of the ganache. Roll quickly with your hands, as the ganache will melt slightly from the heat of your hands. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in refrigerator overnight.
  4. Roll in American Heritage chocolate drink mix for coating, place back in refrigerator until needed.
