Each truffle is individually hand-sewn using wool felt and wool thread, filled with fiber fill, and some are topped with puffy paint for a luscious looking chocolate embellishment. Round truffles also contain a small circle of recycled cardboard to maintain shape.
For $12.00 you pick your favorite four truffles from those photographed, and they come to you in a hand-stamped petits cadeaux decorative box. The boxes are not handmade; they are Martha Stewart brand for bridal shower/wedding favors.
The truffles are about 1" squared each and actually have the scent of real chocolate (by being stored with real dark chocolate caramels.)

These make an amazing gift for anyone's play kitchen, holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or just for fun. Cats seem to go nuts for them too as toys, with or without a rub of catnip.
The unique joy of these hand made toys is that they are heirloom quality. They also work as adorable tiny pin cushions and can be converted easily into beautiful ornaments for a tree-just specify if you want the truffles transformed in your purchase. Also please specify the four truffles you want per the 'types' listed above.
A full set can be made to order for $25.00 US. Message me for a custom posting!
