Did you know that the correct name for a group of bats is a colony
? In the course of doing a little Googling to figure that out, I found this great page
of animal group names. A colony of bats is a pretty
good name, but not nearly as great as a business of ferrets, a shrewdness of apes, or an unkindness of ravens! Forget candy writing, I want to go into the business of animal group naming.
But I digress. Back to the candy! I am happy to share with you this colony of Bat Truffles: rich chocolate truffles decorated with hand-piped chocolate bat wings. You can give them faces with white chocolate, but I kind of loved their pristine exterior--the better to look vaguely sinister, my dears.
