Back in 1998 Hilda Charles and Sheryl Layton had an idea whose time had come: a truffle tribute to the world’s Cherry Capital. Credit the two chocolatiers, owners of Charles Layton Chocolates, for developing the heavenly handmade dark Chocolate Cherry Truffle, a confection worthy of the locally grown tart cherry nectar at its center.

Since then the duo have kicked that recipe up with a chipotle-infused version. Could Up North truffles get any better? Oh yes—when they’re flavored with wine selected by vintners from Northern michigan wineries.
