ELIZABETHTOWN - Elizabethtown Community Hospital's auxiliary will be selling handmade truffles for Valentine's Day.
Auxiliary Member Joanne Baldwin is leading the effort. Her education in culinary arts and experience as a chef feeds into the development of this particular fundraiser.
The truffles will be made using imported chocolate and other ingredients; and each truffle will be individually-produced. The chocolate will be tempered, melted, cooled and combined with various flavorings - all by hand. Each truffle will then be rolled into mixtures that will envelop them with ingredients such as powdered sugar or cocoa, providing another layer of delicious flavor and unique texture.
The truffles will come packaged in a beautiful box, suitable for presenting to a loved one. A box of 6 will cost $12.
Orders for truffles will be taken until 3 p.m. on Feb. 5. Payment is due when the order is placed. Truffles will be made on Feb. 10 and may be picked up in the lobby of the hospital on Feb. 12 from 3-5 p.m.
Contact Jane Hooper to place an order at 873-3003.
