Seth Ellis Chocolatier mint truffles

Chocolate and mint must be the most perfect combination in the world. I mean, besides chocolate and peanut butter. And peanut butter and banana. And peanut butter and jelly. And…okay. Chocolate and mint is one of the most perfect combinations in the world.

Even though I know better, I’m still a sucker for After Eight. Put a box in front of me, and I will eat the entire thing. No questions asked.

Well, Seth Ellis Chocolatier’s mint truffles taste like the best of After Eights, but with more actual mint and less of that crunchy fondant filling. It’s a smooth, rich ganache that tastes of crisp, bright mint. It tastes like summer, but better.

Seth Ellis chocolates are available at select locations in the Denver/Boulder area, and that page will soon be updated to reflect the five NYC Whole Foods that now carries them. You can also buy them online through It’s Only Natural Gifts or through Foodzie.

  1. Very interesting, and you got me hooked by talking about the similarity to After Eights. Now I’m anxious to try Seth Ellis. It looks like you’re going to IFBC, and I am too. Shall we meet?

  2. Wonderful pictures! The chocolate looks amazing.

  3. Alicia, I think we spoke at IFBC but I can’t remember. I blame the free wine. I hope that if we did speak, I didn’t make a complete moron of myself.

    Julie, these chocolates are as tasty as they look. If you can get your hands on them, I’d buy a box of these. The ginger and raspberry are pretty damn delicious, too.
