Bewitching Italian Chocolate Truffles

( Click image for enlarged view )

Happy Dewali ... to all my blogger friends ... wondering why I am wishing you all so early...well I am on my way now to India to celebrate Dewali. Got to catch a flight tomorrow morning !!

Last few days have been hectic and I have been unable to visit all your blogs .. I am sorry about that but I am sure I will be visiting your blogs when I settle down in India.. It will take a few days for me , I will really miss blogging and all your yummy recipes. I may post some wonderful creations of my MIL,Mom and my SIL : )

Before leaving I wanted to post this Italian chocolate truffle ... its very easy to prepare and it simply melts in your mouth. It is a soft chocolate with mild orange flavor that will tickle your tastebuds

Happy Dewali once again and have a wonderful time and here is the recipe

Cooking Time : 7 min
Preparation Time: 10 min
Make : 24 truffles

Ingredients :
  • 6 oz semisweet chocolate (best quality)
  • 1/4 tsp orange extract
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp confectionery sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond powder (finely grinded)
  • 2 oz semisweet chocolate grated (for coating)
Making the Truffles

Melt the semisweet chocolate with orange extract in a bowl set over a saucepan of hot water,stir until well combined.

Add butter and stir until it melts,add sugar and almond powder and stir nicely

Let the mixture sit in a cool place until it is firm enough.Divide and shape them into 24 balls.

Place the grated chocolate on a plate and roll the truffles in it to coat them nicely.

Place the truffles in paper candy cases and let it chill. Your tempting truffles are ready.

Note:

You can melt ur chocolate in microwave ,but u have to stir it in every 30 second till it melts completely

In original recipe they used 2 tbsp orange liqueur but I replaced it with orange extract.

I am sending this truffles to
