BUMP!

Will’s Boozy Creamy Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients

Chocolate for melting. White, milk or dark. Whatever your preference.

Amaretto, Cointreau and brandy creams

Digestive biscuits

Chopped nuts

Orange peel

Marzipan

Chopped glazed cherries

Cake cases

Method

Melt the chocolate in a bowl; it is nice to mix milk and white for a marbled effect.

In another bowl crumble the biscuits, two at a time is best.

You can make the truffles as big or small as you like, I tend to make them about 1” in diameter.

For the Cointreau cream truffles, mix a large spoon of the cream with the crumbled biscuits and roll into small balls with your hands, then dip into chosen melted chocolate and cover fully and put into cake cases. Grate a little orange peel over the top of each truffle to add to the orange flavour of the liquor, you can also mix the peel into the melted chocolate before hand and include chopped nuts.

For the Brandy cream truffles, repeat the process as above but miss out the orange peel and add chopped cherries to mixture.

For the Amaretto cream truffles repeat the process and add tiny rolled balls of marzipan to the mixture.

The chopped nuts give the Ferrero Rocher effect.

These need to be kept in the fridge. Once made transfer to fridge to allow chocolate to set fast...the faster the better then you can eat them.


I am bumping this recipe as it it soooo good, they must be tried! :lol:
I did the brandy cream truffles today, oh my goodness, they are yummy. :D
If you want something really yummy, better than shop bought chocs, try these. :mrgreen:

They sound yummy Will. You're more adventurous than me with your cooking. I've made some chocolate buns this afternoon.
I'll send you one down the wire. :)
Keep calm and carry on.
