Do you want to show me romance and sweep me off my feet? Then bake me the Yummiest Chocolate Truffles...Below is the recipe. Flowers are a pleasing motion, but I don't have a fancy vase so they end up sitting on my table in a pickle jar and then my cat ends up eating them. Presents and flowers are sweet and although I may say thank you out loud in my mind I'm saying to myself, Wonderful, now I have more crud sitting on my living room table.
Nah, if you really would like to bring joy to my heart, then cook for me. If you don't know how to cook, just make me truffles.
If you follow the chocolate truffles recipe below you'll soon realize that ruffles are the easiest yummy candy to make...Cream, chocolate, and time is all that's required to create something blissfully exquisite, decadent, and so yummy. Make certain you use high quality chocolate, and if you can find it, chocolate that's 62% cacao or higher, and organic cream, as the quality of these components will affect the end results.
Chocolate Truffles Recipe.
*8 ounces of semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate (high quality, 62% cacao or higher), well chopped up into little bits.
*1/2 cupful of heavy whipping cream.
*1 teaspoon of vanilla extract extract.
*5 minutes of thinking about me.
*Finely chopped walnuts.
*Finely chopped almonds.
*The key to my heart.
Some extra base flavorings...If you have them.
*Mint leaves [1 cluster, stems cut off, chopped, approximately 1 cup].
*Cinnamon and cardamom [1 cinnamon stick, 2 cardamom pods].
*Amaretto [1-2 tablespoons].
*Almond extract [1 teaspoon].
*Hugs and kisses.
Number 1) In a little, heavy saucepan bring the heavy whipping cream to a simmer [this could take a bit of time, make certain to stir and wipe down the sides with a rubber spatula every couple of minutes).
If you're utilizing one of the extra suggested flavorings in your chocolate truffles recipe , stir it in with the cream [and ignore the vanilla in the next step]. If putting in mint or other solids, put them in after the cream simmers, remove from the heat and let stand for an hour. Then strain out the solids, and put the cream back to simmer and continue with recipe.
Number 2) Put the chocolate in a separate bowl. Pour the cream on top of the chocolate, add the vanilla, and let it stand for a few minutes then stir until smooth. [This chocolate foundation is called ganache.]
Number 3) Let it cool down, then put in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Now remove from fridge and with a teaspoon make balls of the ganache. Roll them in your hands rapidly [as they will melt from the heat of your hands] and put them on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Put in the refrigerator overnight.
Number 4) Roll the round little bundles of joy in cocoa powder or chopped nuts and serve, or place back in the refrigerator until needed.
