Guylian sent me a wonderful assortment of their Belgian Truffles..again. This time they included some of their amazing Valentine’s day packaging. Let me tell you, they would make amazing gifts! I love Guylian’s truffles because they are so decadent. They are marbled with Milk, Dark, and White Belgian chocolate and filled with their signature hazelnut filling. They are simply amazing and of course the shell and seahorse shapes are just too cute!
The story of Chocolaterie Guylian began in the late 1950’s with the marriage of Guy Foubert and Liliane. Guy and Liliane joined their names in our company name: Chocolaterie Guy-lian. Guy soon realised that the world was ready for something totally new. On which the young couple created for the first time chocolates in the shape of seashells. Guy developed the recipe of our signature hazelnut praliné filling; Lilliane added the artistic touch by designing the shining marbled look and the delicately sculptured shapes. A true love story of romance and chocolate.
After sampling these delectable treats I decided to do something new with them. I have been thinking about making chocolate cupcakes for awhile now but it seems like being a chocolate lover, I wanted a twist. While eating one of them I started thinking about what an amazing buttercream they would make. So after a little tweaking the Chocolate Cupcake with Guylian Truffle Infused Buttercream was born. This is a rich cupcake and so delicious. I hope you enjoy the recipe and if you make them please let me know!
