Chef Will's signature chocolate truffles go above and beyond whatever it is that truffles are meant to do; whether aphrodisiac, stimulant or health food, each is a work of art, infused with any of a long list of surprising flavors the burn of cayenne or chili powders, floral rose and violet aromas, essence of black tea, chamomile or coffee, to name just a few. Don't doubt it: Chocolate especially chocolate like this is better than sex. But maybe we shouldn't go there.
