Truffles

Dark chocolate truffle covered in icing sugar

Made some truffles mainly to for part of a birthday cake decoration... these were made with Lindt 70% eating dark chocolate, thickened cream and some brandy and Kahlua.
It was supposedly a brandy truffle recipe, but it's a bit sourish (also maybe I used salted butter instead of unsalted! I forgot!!)... so I added some sweeter Kahlua... even so, not much and the alchohol taste wasn't obvious (otherwise sis would have said something about it when she tried haha...)


These really look like the truffles in mud right? These were with cocoa powder

Didn't attempt the chocolate coated version because I wasn't making a lot of truffles and didn't want to melt overly much couverture chocolate just to coat a few... next time.
