Telluride Truffle Named Top Chocolate Shop
TELLURIDE – Kudos to local chocolatier Patty Denny and her homegrown Telluride Truffles, which earned a spot on the Huffington Post earlier this week as one of Colorado’s top chocolate shops in honor of National Chocolates and Mousse Day.
Denny wasn’t quite certain why the popular web-only news service chose to illustrate its only non-chain, Four Corners pick with a photo of her signature, pyramid-shaped truffles half-hidden in a mug of milk, but she was nonetheless ecstatic at the prominent mention of the brand she founded in 1997. Since then Denny has slowly built her Belgian chocolate- and organic cream-based business, finally opening a storefront in Telluride’s historic downtown in the summer of 2009.
“I’m so psyched, it’s very exciting,” said Denny.
“I read the Huffington Post,” she continued. “That’s a pretty big reach.”
