One of my fondest memories from childhood revolved around the annual sample day at Lyla’s Chocolates. Each October my mom and I would squeeze into the tiny shop, among hordes of other women, to try out their newest sugary sweets. My favorites were always the honeycomb (which I made here) and their truffles, that were dark and rich with flavor. The shop’s no longer there, but yesterday I made my own batch that were smooth, velvety and almost as good as I remember.
