Jack Valley Truffles "The 9 Bar"
The Jack Valley Truffles "9 Bar" is a traditional French mendiant, which is a chocolate bar that is studded with dried fruit and nuts. We’ve chosen to celebrate the Wisconsin cherry in this particular mendiant and have chosen 8 ingredients that would complement its sweet, tart flavor. Those 8 ingredients, along with the Wisconsin cherry, yield the delicious JVT "9 Bar"
