The amount of chocolate around right now is obscene.  Everything I have been baking in the last few days has called for some variety of chocolate: bittersweet, semisweet, unsweetened, the list goes on and on. The number one thing on my to make list for the holidays were some chocolate truffles. One thing I didn't know about truffles (like 85% of the things I set out to make), are how easy they are to make! They only require two ingredients: heavy cream and chocolate chips. That's. It.

I used a combination of recipes (this one, one from a Williams-Sonoma cookbook, and this YouTube vid) and my own little touches. For example, I added a pinch of salt to the chocolate as it was melting, (to enhance the chocolate flavor) and I made a batch of truffles with a very special ingredient: Kahlúa. Mind you, in the process of making the truffles, I can't remember which ones are made with the Kahlúa and which ones aren't. Whoops!  But at least its a pleasant surprise and not like a nail or something....)


  1. Those look absolutely delicious, they're incredibly pretty as well! I would never be able to adapt recipes, so you must be a very talented chef, then! 

    There's a new post up on my blog with details on my first giveaway, so feel free to stop by!

  2. This is so cool that you made truffles! These really do look like something straight out of a William's & Sonoma's catalogue :) 


  3. Thanks Nina! They taste SO GOOD! And everyone else agrees lol.
