If you ever decide to splurge and spend $1.99 on an adorable little tin of dark chocolate truffles even though there are only 8 in the tin and you realize that means you are paying 25 cents for each little bite sized taste of heaven, be sure to hide them in the bottom of your purse so that you can sneak one out when there are no children hanging around.
Then after you eat your first one, DO NOT leave the tin in your purse when you take the kiddies to the pool so you can roast in the sun and save your five yr. old from drowning, because if you do you will find that the next time you open the tin there will no longer be any bite sized truffles. Instead, there will be a sheet of chocolate goop covering the bottom of the tin and the paper that separated the 2 luscious layers of truffles.
Don’t worry though, a spoon works just fine to scrape out the goop, and just ignore the fact that you are essentially eating 7 truffles at once.
If you are really desperate, you can even lick the paper and the bottom of the tin, but make sure you do this out of sight of any big mouthed kids.
You DO have your dignity, you know.
