Truffles Kisses

Share!

Still a bit weak from the cold but finally got some antibiotics. So please pardon my short post. I still wanted to participate in this month’s Creative Cooking Crew. This month’s theme was “The Perfect Bite”. So I offer you some sweet chocolate Truffle Kisses, what can be more perfect than that!

When I saw the theme my first reaction was that my last liver experiment dish was The Perfect Bite. The Liver on Polenta with a Ginger-Onion Confit was a perfect balance of flavors and textures, it floored me. But I cannot exactly post the same thing twice in a row hi hi. So right away my mind went to sweets and then to truffles.

What is more divine then biting into a delicious chocolate ganache? Piped like (or as closely as one can sick) little kisses, and with a touch of Nutella and a sprinkling of nuts, these definitely made my mouth sing.

Ha ha Christo, I hope your pockets are refrigerated because they will get very soft, but great idea 😉

how well can these travel – I would love to wrap up a few in parchment and have them in my pocket anytime I need a perfect little bite of chocolatey goodness

You did well by the bite… I was a little worried that I didn’t take bite as seriously as I should but thought it was a bite of something as well as a single bite serving.

Don’t get me started on truffles. Mad for chocolate and you have made a beautiful bite of darkness.

Feel better!
