Recipe For Truffles

Some time back I received a lovely gift box from Lindt, full of all sorts of goodies. I had already decided I wanted to do a course at their chocolate studio, and now I am determined I will be saving up to do one soon. The box contained macaroons– way better than the ones I made; chocolate brownies that were not nearly as good as mine, and some truffles.

After Dave devoured the contents I went and bought some of the Lindt Excellence: A Touch of Sea Salt and it sat in the cupboard waiting for me to do something with it. I decided to make a chocolate mousse, but that failed and so I made truffles. This is not the same recipe as appears in Lavender & Lime as the chocolate is softer to work with and so easier to pipe than hand mould.

  4. Dave would shake his head at me; I have a box of handmade truffles (a gift last Christmas) that is sitting untouched on my coffee table. Not my thing at all. *makes note to give them to Side View tonight*
