I have made chocolate truffle just once in this entire life of mine and trust me, i got traumatized. So difficult to shape!

Sometime last week, i decided to give chocolate truffle another go, with a different recipe no less. I read up a couple of recipes before deciding on this particular recipe which in my humble opinion, seemed pretty solid because of one additional ingredient. And guess what? Molding these chocolates was as easy as ABC! By the way, i didn’t even have to use my hands. All i did was scrapped the hardened chocolate with spoon, threw all of them into a plate of cocoa powder, gave them a roll or 2 and viola!

So simple but oh so orgasmic (and affordable too!) these wicked stuff! <3

Chocolate Truffle

(makes 30)

227 g good dark chocolate – i used 76%
120ml whipping cream
28g unsalted butter
2 tbsp alcohol, optional

Coating for chocolate

cocoa powder, toasted nuts, tempered chocolate, shaved chocolate, coconut flakes


1. Place the chocolate in a bowl. Set aside. Heat cream and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to just boil. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for a minute or 2. Stir with a rubber spatula till smooth. If desired, add liqueur. Cover and place in the fridge until the mixture is firm.
2. Shape anyway you fancy. Roll them, slice them, scoop them. But immediately roll the truffle in the coating, cover and refrigerate until firm. These truffles can last for a couple of weeks or frozen for a couple of months.

(recipe from Joybaking)


No price for guessing what i’d be making this Sunday night! ;)

pssttt : my entire box got emptied out in less than a week and i actually doubled the recipe! Horrors!!

  23. That’s cleared my thoughts. Thanks for contributing.

  24. Thanks guys, I just about lost it looking for this.

  25. AFAICT you’ve covered all the bases with this answer!

  26. Hi GeorgeYour post reflects my thoughts nearly to the letter, I have been like you going from one offer to another and ending up really confused and out of pocket, thats why I have now decided to just follow a few internet marketers who I feel operate in the proper way and hopefully this will help me to focus on the task ahead!All the bestNick

  27. Buenos días. Depende de la forma como estén constituidos los colegios. Si es una asociación sin fines de lucro dedicada exclusivamente a fines educativos (artículo 19° inciso b) de la LIR), entonces no tributa Impuesto a la Renta, ni IGV, y si el usuario no requiere factura, se le puede expedir cualquier recibo simple (artículo 4° inciso 6.3) del Reglamento de Comprobantes de Pago).En cambio, si siendo su institución una asociación sin fines de lucro, el usuario requiere factura, su centro tendría que girarle una factura.

  28. BS low – rationality high! Really good answer!

  29. Haha. I woke up down today. You’ve cheered me up!

  30. And this is the point which you choose to misinterpret. yes, bush is a criminal. he alone is responsible,as head of your army, for the deaths and mutilations of countless Iraqis. what exactly should the Iraqis do but use the one thing that distinguishes them most from the people who chose to bomb their houses and kill their children (oops, excuse me, COLLATERAL DAMAGE) – their religion.people tend to get slightly irrational when their country gets invaded (oops, another slip, LIBERATED. marija

  31. A bit surprised it seems to simple and yet useful.

  32. Please teach the rest of these internet hooligans how to write and research!

  33. I could read a book about this without finding such real-world approaches!

  34. Finding this post has solved my problem

  35. Whoever edits and publishes these articles really knows what they’re doing.

  36. Boom shakalaka boom boom, problem solved.

  37. Dzięki Sylwek za godne reprezentowanie Polski na największej szosowej imprezie roku. Zawsze byłeś tam gdzie trzeba i zrobiłeś dla swojej ekipy co trzeba. A miejsca na etapach i minutki w klasyfikacji zostawmy analfabetom… kto siedział na siodełku szosówki, jeździł po górkach i wie co nieco o profesjonalnym ściganiu to raczej chyli nisko czoło!!!

  38. I’m so glad I found my solution online.

  39. That’s a sharp way of thinking about it.

  40. This is both street smart and intelligent.

  41. Very true! Makes a change to see someone spell it out like that. :)

  42. A minute saved is a minute earned, and this saved hours!

  43. All the world was superstitious in 1630. In C. V. Wedgewood’s history of the 30 Years War, one of the things she mentioned in the opening chapters was the level of superstition in Germany, France and England — three of the more enlightened regions in the 1630s. And the examples she gave were no worse than what the Russians are shown as exhibiting.

  44. I thank you humbly for sharing your wisdom JJWY

  45. I was struck by the honesty of your posting

  46. Wonderful explanation of facts available here.

  47. Aside from designing the art in 3D on a cpmtuoer and having the carving process automated, has there been much if any innovation in the carving portion of woodworking (like was in your field trip video)? It seems to be, to do that delicate work with the human form on your pieces you’d have to use hand tools exclusively.

  48. It was dark when I woke. This is a ray of sunshine.

  49. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  50. Heck of a job there, it absolutely helps me out.

  51. I want to send you an award for most helpful internet writer.

  52. Yours is a clever way of thinking about it.

  53. I’ve been looking for a post like this forever (and a day)

  54. I literally jumped out of my chair and danced after reading this!

  55. First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!

  56. HHIS I should have thought of that!

  57. The accident of finding this post has brightened my day

  58. So much info in so few words. Tolstoy could learn a lot.

  59. Thanky Thanky for all this good information!

  60. You have more useful info than the British had colonies pre-WWII.

  61. Not sure if you saw this yesterday, but :Yes, I'm sad that traditional newspapers have come upon hard times, and traditional print venues for film criticism are disappearing…. But I'm feeling good these days. I love movies, and I love writing about them and reading about them. I feel like part of a truly World Wide Web (and what a magical term that is–worthy of science fiction). I know good movies are valued everywhere, and good writing.FTW.

  62. Oh man…. if my mom was still alive, she would’ve pitched a fit at that commercial….. she always insisted on making our costumes because she knew she could do a better job…. although we as dumb kids always *wanted* the storebought costumes, even though they were just a cheap plastic jumpsuit type thing with a really crappy plastic mask…. the only problem with this arrangement when I was really young, is that she would dress me up in something she wanted, not what I wanted…. the great embarrassment of my young life was when she put me in this “Great Pumpkin” costume, complete with tights, while my brother got to be the much cooler “Tin Man”…..

  63. You’ve really impressed me with that answer!

  64. Could you ask him to call me? these two has a chemistry with each other he responded to her the way she wanted him to if u can do this to u’re wife or u’re girl friend it equal a squiting orgasm best sex u can have when she comes u continue so she will come again. after that she will hardly move for sometime i’ve done this already u feel that warm comes running down the side of u’re leg it thru

  65. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!*claps hands giddily awaiting the followup on THIS one* Give ‘em (as civil as possible) HELL!

  66. This is the ideal answer. Everyone should read this

  67. Your posting is absolutely on the point!

  68. I actually found this more entertaining than James Joyce.

  69. That’s an apt answer to an interesting question

  70. I was seriously at DefCon 5 until I saw this post.

  71. At last! Someone with the insight to solve the problem!

  72. Can I simply say what a reduction to search out somebody who actually is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the way to convey a problem to light and make it important. More individuals have to learn this and understand this side of the story. I cant imagine youre no more well-liked since you definitely have the gift.

  73. Taking the overview, this post is first class

  74. With all these silly websites, such a great page keeps my internet hope alive.

  75. Movies with Will Smith as narrator

  76. Another issue is video games are normally serious anyway with the key focus on mastering rather than entertainment. Although, it has an entertainment element to keep children engaged, every game will likely be designed to focus on a specific expertise or curriculum, such as math concepts or science. Thanks for your article.

  77. Thanky Thanky for all this good information!

  78. That’s a subtle way of thinking about it.

  79. I really needed to find this info, thank God!

  80. I’m not quite sure how to say this; you made it extremely easy for me!

  81. Surprisingly well-written and informative for a free online article.

  82. Please teach the rest of these internet hooligans how to write and research!

  83. This piece was a lifejacket that saved me from drowning.

  84. Un vote de plus !Je viens de rentrer et après avoir lu ton post sur mon Iphone, je me devais de me connecter sur Internet pour une voix supplémentaire pour toi !J’adore ton blog, je check tous les jours ton nouvel article avec impatience car c’est mon petit bonheur quotidien !!!PS : as-tu fait une petite liste pour les bons plans beauty à New-York ?Bisous !

  85. Lot of smarts in that posting!

  86. Though spare time is probably non-existent for you both, I recommend the book: Mother Nature: Maternal Instincts and How They Shape the Human Species by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy. She has a whole chapter on “The Milky Way”, intriguing stuff. You and Jenn might particularly enjoy it after your grand efforts.

  87. Alakazaam-information found, problem solved, thanks!

  88. Hey, that post leaves me feeling foolish. Kudos to you!

  89. What a pleasure to meet someone who thinks so clearly

  90. Kind of, yes, and yes. I would for sure braise an entire turkey and I would be delicious and tender. What you don’t want to try to do is braise the turkey whole. Cut it apart into its component parts (breast, thighs, legs, wings) and then braise all of the pieces. It will cook more evenly this way. Best practice is to use a pan in which you can lay out the meat in a single layer. You can do this in a roasting pan. Just seal the top with foil. Braising a whole turkey, the outside meat will be completely fall apart when the inside meat has just finished cooking.

  91. Today, considering the fast lifestyle that everyone is having, credit cards get this amazing demand throughout the market. Persons from every area of life are using the credit card and people who are not using the credit card have made arrangements to apply for just one. Thanks for expressing your ideas on credit cards.

  92. This has made my day. I wish all postings were this good.

  93. Created the greatest articles, you have.

  94. Whoa, whoa, get out the way with that good information.

  95. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

  96. You mean I don’t have to pay for expert advice like this anymore?!

  97. A piece of erudition unlike any other!

  98. Absolutely first rate and copper-bottomed, gentlemen!

  99. That’s not just the best answer. It’s the bestest answer!

  100. That hits the target dead center! Great answer!

  101. A bit surprised it seems to simple and yet useful.

  102. If I were a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, now I’d say “Kowabunga, dude!”

  103. No more s***. All posts of this quality from now on

  104. Home run! Great slugging with that answer!

  105. I simply wanted to type a small note to appreciate you for these fabulous instructions you are giving at this website. My prolonged internet look up has at the end of the day been paid with awesome ideas to write about with my close friends. I would suppose that we website visitors actually are very much blessed to dwell in a fabulous site with so many outstanding professionals with very beneficial hints. I feel really privileged to have seen your entire webpage and look forward to really more amazing moments reading here. Thank you once again for all the details.

  106. Super excited to see more of this kind of stuff online.

  107. That kind of thinking shows you’re an expert

  108. I think none will sink, since they’re already considering on how to add “Garboards and Leeboards” to stabilize the barges, I think they will probably be travelling in a convoy, I doubt it’s cohorts will just watch one of their own sink and do nothing.I still can’t quite picture a ship sinking unless it hits a major storm and overturn the ship.

  109. Hey Roger,Sorry to get you fired up, LOL! Yeah, there’s a lot of bad marketers out there peddling their wares, and suckering unsuspecting souls.However, I’m glad you pointed something out, that I neglected to mention in the post.There are also ethical marketers out there as well. Those are the ones people need to follow.Don’t you dare apologize for making a lengthy reply. It just add that much more value to my blog.Thanks for stopping by, my friend!George

  110. AFAICT you’ve covered all the bases with this answer!

  111. I’d venture that this article has saved me more time than any other.

  112. Haha! Where do they get these things? No, soap and water is not for poop… no siree!Oh and speaking of poop can you Jedi mind trick my 6 year old into not having an explosive ass. I’m so serious. If I have to scrub the sides of one more toilet boil… What? TMI? Sorry.

  113. You are good at what you do.You are genuine and sell good stuff.You put a lot back to the community.You also spent a lot of YOUR free time showing others how to make a living.Thanx for it all including the quality you put in to it.On a lighter note, thats some lady you got there……lucky guy…..but then she is too…no I am not gay lolGood luck and stick with it even if you get the flamers ….it shows you work.

  114. Kewl you should come up with that. Excellent!

  115. Mexico? That’s a long drive from NC My husband and I don’t have kids and we haven’t decided whether or not to (we’re young and have only been together 5 years). Unfortunately I know people who have “oopsed” their husbands or otherwise gotten pregnant to “trap” the guy. You’re right… it never works out.Thanks for the honesty. I know it has to be stressful.

  116. Hallelujah! I needed this-you’re my savior.

  117. Hello Dee,Thanks for your words and the beautiful scriptures you shared…The peace and wisdom of the Lord comes rushing forth as we delve into His word. He is the truth, the way and the purpose for everything in our lives. Praise the Lord, and God Bless you my sister in Christ for your unbridled dedication and love for God…Blesssing and Peace~

  118. I’m grateful you made the post. It’s cleared the air for me.

  119. I was really confused, and this answered all my questions.

  120. That hits the target perfectly. Thanks!

  121. Now I’m like, well duh! Truly thankful for your help.

  122. I’ll try to put this to good use immediately.

  123. Heck yeah bay-bee keep them coming!

  124. I told my kids we’d play after I found what I needed. Damnit.

  125. I guess finding useful, reliable information on the internet isn’t hopeless after all.

  126. Thanks for taking the time to post. It’s lifted the level of debate

  127. It’s a joy to find someone who can think like that

  128. This piece was cogent, well-written, and pithy.

  129. Wham bam thank you, ma’am, my questions are answered!

  130. Hey, good to find someone who agrees with me. GMTA.

  131. This has made my day. I wish all postings were this good.

  132. I am commenting to let you be aware of what a incredible encounter my friend’s princess went through using your blog. She noticed too many issues, which included how it is like to possess an incredible helping style to make many people without hassle know precisely selected advanced matters. You truly exceeded our own expected results. Many thanks for displaying these warm and friendly, dependable, explanatory and even cool tips about the topic to Sandra.

  133. Just what the doctor ordered, thankity you!

  134. Hahahhah meneer Chifff heeft een andere shop-habbit dan jij he? Have you met your match! Hmm misschien is het niet eens een heel onverstandig idee als mijn hamster een keer mee tuft met mr. Bob de Bouwer. Aangezien we echt wel terug willen naar A’dam zal er een hoop geklust worden in de nabije toekomst!Big X!

  135. This introduces a pleasingly rational point of view.

  136. It’s really great that people are sharing this information.

  137. You’ve impressed us all with that posting!

  138. Whoa, things just got a whole lot easier.

  139. The magnificence of those blogging engines and CMS platforms will be the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement prosperous material and ‘skin’ the website in this kind of a means that with very small effort one particular would by no means recognize what it’s creating the website tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.

  140. Fell out of bed feeling down. This has brightened my day!

  141. I came, I read this article, I conquered.

  142. The apology was for the use of the word "slut" and not the surrounding hours of broadcast time spent smearing a noncombatant's name and reputation. And during the apology, Limbaugh repeated the exact same misinformed point he was making when he called her a slut. It wasn't an apology at all.This wasn't Stern saying penis on the air or O&A orchestrating a stunt in a church — this was an ongoing personal attack bordering on slander. It's going to take much more than a throwaway apology.

  143. Sharp thinking! Thanks for the answer.

  144. Play informative for me, Mr. internet writer.

  145. That’s a skillful answer to a difficult question

  146. Wow, this is in every respect what I needed to know.

  147. Well put, sir, well put. I’ll certainly make note of that.

  148. Good points all around. Truly appreciated.

  149. Oh yeah, fabulous stuff there you!

  150. I hate my life but at least this makes it bearable.

  151. I am just privileged to get a phone call from my best friend when he discovered the significant thoughts discussed in your web-site. Checking your blog site article is indeed a perfect experience. Thank you for thinking about site visitors just like me, and I wish you the best of success for a skilled web page.

  152. Just what the doctor ordered, thankity you!

  153. I read your posting and was jealous

  154. Good stuff. I still try and kick the idea around in my head of what it would be like to eliminate the conferences, and take each of the 8 division winners and the next 4 best teams, regardless of conference for the playoffs. Seed the teams from 1 to 12. Top 4 teams get a bye in round 1. 5 vs 12, 6 vs 11, etc. in round 1. Reseed for round 2, repeat.

  155. This has made my day. I wish all postings were this good.

  156. Je ne peux que répéter que c’est évidemment possible, mais que ce n’est pas forcément le bon moment, quand la récession est là. Quelques dizaines d’emplois en moins dans une petite ville et c’est souvent l’effet domino. Un café restaurant qui fait faillite, une classe en moins à l’école, etc. Il y a en revanche un gros travail à faire pour rationaliser quand les indicateurs sont au vert – ou pour déconcentrer certaines administrations en contrepartie. Paris n’a pas souffert du déménagement de l’ENA et Strasbourg en a tiré bénéfice (quoique Strasbourg était déjà gâtée par le Parlement européen: je pense que d’autres villes de province auraient constitué un choix plus judicieux)

  157. That’s way the bestest answer so far!

  158. Good article and a nice summation of the problem. My only problem with the analysis is given that much of the population joined the chorus of deregulatory mythology, given vested interest is inclined toward perpetuation of the current system and given a lack of a popular cheerleader for your arguments, I’m not seeing much in the way of change.

  159. Your post has moved the debate forward. Thanks for sharing!

  160. You got to push it-this essential info that is!

  161. You have more useful info than the British had colonies pre-WWII.

  162. They DO matter. and I commend you for commenting on this post. It’s gotten a fair amount of hits since I posted it earlier today and you are the first person to actually say something. I think this speaks volumes. People are, as you say. “compassion fatigued” but we all need to step back, collect ourselves and then jump back in and fight the good fight. If we don’t, who will?

  163. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

  164. I’ve been looking for a post like this for an age

  165. Nothing I could say would give you undue credit for this story.

  166. Your post has lifted the level of debate

  167. Learning a ton from these neat articles.

  168. With all these silly websites, such a great page keeps my internet hope alive.

  169. A minute saved is a minute earned, and this saved hours!

  170. Holy Toledo, so glad I clicked on this site first!

  171. You have the monopoly on useful information-aren’t monopolies illegal? ;)

  172. At last, someone who knows where to find the beef

  173. Well done article that. I’ll make sure to use it wisely.

  174. Keep on writing and chugging away!

  175. Hi Pauline,Thank you for your comment! I can’t begin to tell you how many products I have in my hard drive collecting that proverbial digital dust.I need to delete them also. As you said, if I have not done something with them by now, then I never will. How true.I’m glad to see you here again. I wish you the very best!George

  176. Thinking like that shows an expert at work

  177. Good to find an expert who knows what he’s talking about!

  178. Știi care-i asemănarea dintre mine și Marius Pahomi? Presimt că n-o să ghicești în veci, nu de alta dar nici eu și probabil nici el, nu știam că există vreo asemănare între noi. Să nu treacă toată noaptea până ghiciți vă spun eu: la amândoi ne-a plăcut tare prezentarea lui Zoso de la Webstock 2011. Eu am dat-o pe FB el a pus-o pe blog.

  179. Thanks for introducing a little rationality into this debate.

  180. So excited I found this article as it made things much quicker!

  181. If your articles are always this helpful, “I’ll be back.”

  182. Deep thinking – adds a new dimension to it all.
