The Dillsboro Chocolate Factory recently won an award for one of its custom creations.
The award winning chocolate is called “A Shot in the Dark” truffle. The truffle has a blend of espresso and caramel that is dipped in dark gourmet chocolate and is topped with their own homemade toffee.
The truffle won first place at the “Taste of Chocolate” competition in Maggie Valley.
This was the second year in a row that the Dillsboro Chocolate Factory has won first place at this annual competition.
