Chocolate Truffles


This is a super easy Chocolate Truffles recipe that my daughter made for me on Mothers Day. She said she learnt how to make them from a Japanese cooking website. There is no cooking involved here, apart from melting the chocolate. Make sure you use the best or your favorite chocolate for this recipe. Have fun making them.

(Printable Recipe)

Ingredients

200 g Dark Chocolate, any flavor
6 Tbsp Whipped Cream
2 tsp Vegetable Oil
Dutch-Process Cocoa Powder, for coating
Boiling Water

Method

Pour the boiling water in a large mixing bowl. Then place a medium-mixing bowl on top of the boiling water. Add the cream and warm thoroughly. Mix in the chocolate, and stir until melted. Then add the oil and stir until smooth. Cover and freeze just until firm enough to mound in a spoon, about 40 minutes.

Line the bottom of a baking sheet with a plastic wrap. Scoop out the filling by tablespoonfuls and drop onto the sheet, spacing them evenly. Cover and freeze until almost firm but still pliable, about 30 minutes.

Spread the cocoa on a flat plate. Place each chocolate mound into a piece of plastic wrap and roll in between your palms into a smooth ball, then roll in cocoa powder to coat evenly.

  9. I made these a couple of days ago and boy we couldn't stop gulping all of them down before they were even firm enough. Loved them.

    I rolled some in finely crushed hazelnut waffles, and they were good.

    thanks a gazillion

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
