Happy chocolate day mommies! It's Valentine's week and what better than a custom made yummmmy chocolate for your partner, kids and family and yeah it makes a perfect gift to our close ones during festivals! I am sharing my recipe for nutty choco truffles which my husband truly devours and is a super hit amongst his colleagues too whenever he takes it to his hospital! So without wasting much of the time, sharing the recipe!
Chocolate - 100 gm(1 cup) I am using the "morde" here
Cream (amul)- 50 ml (1/4 cup)
Marie biscuits or any non cream biscuit can be used- 6 (crush coarsely, don't make a powder)
Sugar(grainy, not fine, we want this for crunch, not for sweetness)- 3-4 tsp
Mixed nuts, chopped- 2-4 tbsp/ 6-12 tsp
Take a plate and put aluminium foil/ plastic sheet/any glazed paper so chocolate don't stick to the plate.
In a thick base pan, add Cream, stir continuously and when it gets warm, switch off fire and add chocolate and let it melt by the warmth of Cream, slowly it will melt.
Add remaining ingredients, mix well and refrigerate this mixture until firm enough to be rolled in balls, I keep for 5-10 mins depending on season.
Make small balls with dry hands and put them on lined plate and refrigerate for 2-3 mins. When firm, u may coat it as per your choice. Either dip in melted chocolate or roll in chopped nuts or roll in desiccated coconut or roll in cocoa powder, choice is yours!
This time i have coated them in chopped nuts!
And delicious chocolate truffles are ready to be served!
Storage- At my home it gets over as soon as I prepare, but if we want to store, just wrap in aluminium foil pieces or if u want to gift there are very beautiful chocolate wrapping papers available or u may serve as it is! Stays good in refrigerator upto 2 months!
Tip- If you want to make it like Ferrero rocher, add roasted and crushed hazelnuts -1-2 tsp and 1tsp nutlla in the mixture. I don't like ferrero so skip it! #Chocolate #recipe #Chocolateday #Valentine 's day #newbie #momathon2
