So, just a quick one today... and not at all jewellery related.
As it is valentines day I thought I'd share a quick and easy recipe for making your own chocolate truffles. I tested them out on my other half as a Valentines treat, and although mine may not be the most beautiful truffles ever, they do taste YUMMY - even if I do say so myself.
So here's what you need and how to make them:
1 (200g) tub cream cheese, softened350g icing sugar, sifted500g plain chocolate, melted1 1/2 teaspoons vanillaIn a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in icing sugar until well blended. Stir in melted chocolate and vanilla until no streaks remain. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Shape into 2.5cm balls.
Then roll them in cocoa powder, crushed nuts, or coconut, or simply decorate with melted white/dark chocolate.
