(not mentioning the trip to the shops yesterday....yuck for crowds!)
The presents are all done, just need to wrap some of them. (sweet)
Best part of a tree is that it bring such amazing boké to the photos
First off: The kitchen mess....and this is only from one of the 4 batches!
Note to self: don't put a cold pan with chocolate onto a hot stove....it will melt...
Truffles are just not easy and fun...but soooo delicious!!
The recipe I made I got from Jamie Oliver:
300 ml cream (I used heavy cream)
300g good chocolate
a pinch of sea salt
a knob of butter (which I forgot in batch 1 and batch 2, 3,4)
+ whatever taste you want
I used clementine zest, orange zest+juice, ground cardamom, grated ginger, liqueor (baileys)
All turned out pretty darned good!! :)
