I’ve recently joined Pinterest – a little late to the party, but better late than never! It’s really inspired me and has given me loads of new foodie ideas. As if by serendipity, I was also invited to attend a baking event at the Miele showroom in London. Bestie wrote about our experience here. So with all these new ideas floating around in my head, I decided that this year I would make all my Christmas gifts.
My most favourite recipe that we learnt at the Miele event was Chocolate Truffles. They are so super-easy that it may be dangerous. I take no responsibility for any expanding waistlines after sharing this recipe!
- 115g plain chocolate
- 40g butter, cubed
- 55g ground almonds
- 6 glacier cherries
- 3 tbsp brandy or rum (optional)
- 55g icing sugar
- Add the chocolate and butter together into a pan and melt on a low heat on the hob. Take off the heat and add the rest of the ingredients.
- Place into the fridge and allow to cool.
- When it has cooled, take it out of the fridge and using a teaspoon measure (so that all the truffles are the same size) take some of the mix and roll each truffle into a ball.
- Coat in the topping of your choice. I used chocolate vermicelli and edible stars.
Until we eat again!
