I do not have a lot of experience working with chocolate, but nevertheless, I decided to tackle chocolate truffles. Let’s just say that two batches later, I learned a lot. I used this recipe, replacing the Grand Marnier with amaretto, and skipping the coffee as some reviewers suggested. The chocolate itself came from Trader Joe’s, which had a great selection of high quality varieties.
My truffles were not really round, but each one was shaped a little differently, just like snowflakes. I couldn’t find the window where the chocolate was set, but could still be molded into a ball. So I dusted them with a blend of powdered sugar and unsweetened cocoa, and hoped for the best. Remember, it’s what’s inside that counts, and there’s enough chocolate goodness here to make you forget the rest.
Have a Merry Christmas, and I’ll be back on Monday with new recipes from the holiday!
