|Chocolate Truffles #Recipes|
I am so delighted to post my 100th blog post today. And co-incidentally the festival of Raksha Bandhan is also today. I have a younger brother but he is miles away from me today. So, through this post, I am conveying my wishes and love to him and a virtual treat!
For those who are not aware of this Indian festival here is a brief introduction.
"Raksha Bandhan is a festival primarily observed in India, which celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters. The festival is observed by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs. The central ceremony involves the tying of a rakhi (sacred thread) by a sister on her brother's wrist. This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her." (Source Wiki).
As I am writing this 100th post, I feel as if I have achieved an important milestone! Till date, I have posted a number of book reviews and some recipes too. Thank you all for supporting me on this blog journey!
Without much ado, here is today's recipe ~ Chocolate Truffles!
Adapted from here
How to Make Chocolate Truffles
100gm semisweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
125gm milk chocolate, cut into small pieces
120 ml double cream
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
Dutch-Processed Cocoa Powder for coating.
Makes about 25-30 truffles depending on size.
1. Place the chopped chocolate in a medium-sized heatproof bowl. Set aside.
2. Heat the cream and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring it to a boil. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for a minute or two.
3. Stir with a rubber spatula until smooth. Make sure the chocolate has melted. If not, microwave it for 20-30 seconds.
4. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight to make the truffle mixture firm.
5. Place your coating cocoa powder for the truffles on a plate. Remove the truffle mixture from the refrigerator.
6. With a spoon or melon baller or a small ice cream scoop form the chocolate into round or misshaped bite-sized balls. Greasing your palms slightly helps in the process.
7. Immediately roll the truffle in the coating and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet or tray.
8. Cover and place in the refrigerator until firm. Bring to room temperature before serving.
