Food in Process: Chocolate truffles


One of the best comfort food
in the world is probably: chocolate.
A friend of mine was happy to
receive my little gift of chocolate
truffles that I've made for her!

It was little bit melted when
I hand it over, so make sure 
to store it in a cool place right
away!

Credits to Charlotte's Frame supereasy
recipe that brought victory in
the kitchen c; You guys 
should check her versatile blog!

Da Recipe: 300 gram extra dark chocolate, 125 ml cream
60 gram cacao powder


1. Grab a steel bowl and add the chocolate.

2. Boil water in a steel pan, once it's boiled remove from heat
and put the bowl of chocolate on top to let it melt. Your
kitchen should smell really good now :P

3. Once it's all melted, add the cream and mix well with
a spoon. 

4. Once the mixture is cooled down, put it in the fridge
for about 45 min to 1 hour. Stir the mixture once in
awhile to avoid becoming SOLID.

 5. Finally, prepare a large plate and sprinkle the cacao powder on it. 

6. The choco mixture should have a thick texture by now. Get yourself a
teaspoon (I have used my hands honestly) and scoop up the mixture and drop 
on the cacao'd plate. 

7. And now the fun part: roll roll roll until the truffles are all covered in
cacao and you are very done! Good job!

 I bought this at the fair, as this is my first time seeing this
adorable heartshaped waffle!

I'm Feeling: good, a bit neckpain..

  3. What a great recipe - it looks so easy, I will have to try it. I love that you used a Chinese spoon. It's interesting that you measure everything in grams , a lot of my European friends do that. Us Americans use tablespoons, cups, etc. How does the grams system work? Do you have to weigh everything? ><

    Teach me! haha~
