Fran's Chocolates

Seattle chocolatier Fran's is probably most famous for its sea-salted caramels, a much-trumpeted favorite of President Obama's. They also do an elegant range of bite-sized truffles in both milk and dark chocolate. The ganache fillings are silky smooth and infused with a range of flavors that, while not particularly innovative, boast an intensity that not many truffles match. Of the small assortment I tried I especially liked the richly aromatic espresso, but found the raspberry sadly unconvincing, despite the inclusion of both fruit puree and framboise.
