Chocolate and Yellow Spot for a mouthwatering dessert delight. Pairing chocolate with whiskey can be tricky but this recipe compliments the flavour of yellow spot with these decadent chocolate truffles.

Tasting note: The nutty stone fruit flavours in the Yellow Spot brings this chocolate truffle into another realm.
