Dark Chocolate Nutty Truffles | Sinful Delights :-))

Sometimes the solution is right in front of our eyes, istn it ? have you ever faced a block in your mind and yet fail to find the solution that is mockingly right there.. It happened to me last eve when I was racking  my  brain as to what to make for the last day of Kids Delight theme for Blogging Marathon 30 : Day 3,  when my kid simply said ‘Chocolate, of course !Why even ask”

Well,  I am not a heavy-whipped-cream-cake-and-frosting kind of mom , so wanted to make something that was not only simple but also used up the ingredients that were available at home, and so something that I read recently popped into my brain – Dark Chocolate Nutty Truffles ... The photo below taken at 11:30 pm when both kids were asleep doesnt do justice, but it more than makes up for in its taste..

For any chocoholic (read, the husband and kiddo), this was weekend coming over 2 days early ;-))  This ingredients make a batch of 12 melt-in-the mouth niblets, so you can simply halve or even double or triple the recipe. What’s more? Simply make ahead of any birthday party, and refrigerate it, and you have a winner on hand.. So, let’s go and make this yummy delight which is surely a party pleaser – with kids and adults alike.  

Prep time : 10 mins | Cook time : 5 mins | Makes : a dozen medium sized Truffles

Ingredients:
  • Dark Chocolate – 50 gms (I used Morde – you can use any cooking chocolate- avoid using Dairy Milk or any prepared chocolate as it already contains caramel)
  • Marie Biscuits – about 15 – 20 (approx 2 packets) : you may substitute with any plain mild sweetened biscuits
  • Coarsely chopped nuts – 3 tsp (I used Walnuts)
  • Condensed Milk – approx 4 – 6 TBSP (adjust taste)
  • Butter – 25 gms (approx 2 TBSP)
  • Garnish : White chocolate – grated  & glazed cherries

Method:
Powder the biscuits in a mixer grinder or put in a Ziploc and crush it fine with a rolling pin.
Melt butter and dark chocolate together in a double boiler.
In a large bowl, add butter, chocolate, biscuits, condensed  milk , nuts and make a slightly stiff dough.
Rest for 5 mins
Make equal portions and roll into a small roundel. Top with grated white chocolate and cherries. Refrigerate for min 1 hour. Serve

Note : You may use any topping that you wish – powdered chocolate / dessicated coconut / candied fruit. You may also wish to stuff the truffle with nuts / raisins or even blanched almonds to make it richer , and sinful :-))
