Truffles & Happy Holidays

22 Dec

I love that time of year. Christmas time is the best time celebrated, of the year. With all the preparations, the food and sweets bakings, the gifts shopping. It’s a magical time. Spend time with all the family, parents, sister, husband, aunts, cousins, uncle…. it is my favourite gathering. The meaning of Christmas is all around. At homes, in the streets, in schools, in the stores… in the spirits…. Hope these holidays bring  joy and peace to our hearts.

For me, Christmas couldn’t pass by without some bakings. Last week I did some gingerbread cookies. And Last night I prepared some chocolate truffles with Tia Maria, and this morning coated them with cocoa powder. And of course, the favourite dessert at christmas is the bûche de Noêl. I’m making two different yule logs tomorrow. Of course, I’ll be posting about it.

For the truffles, I chopped 100 g dark chocolate (70%), and poured over 100 ml boiled cream, let it set for 30 seconds, added 1/2 teaspoon Tia Maria ( of course, you can add the liqueur you want) and stired until all the chocolate is melted. Let cool completely before refrigerating. The next day, I spooned some of the batter between my palms and made small balls then rolled them on a parchement paper sprinkled with cocoa powder. Until all the truffles are well coated with cocoa. Put in a container and refrigerate till serving. Enjoy.
