Dark Chocolate Truffles

chocolate truffles

Today was Josh's day off, so he let me have a few hours at home to myself...nice! With my time I cleaned house, did laundry, made truffles and a flourless chocolate torte for dessert tomorrow night. I also decorated the table a little for V-day. We have a tradition of placing a to-go order and eating at home. I usually make dessert and try to make it Valentine-y. We refuse to go out to eat with the thousands of others!

It was fun to have some time in the kitchen by myself! Sadly, my truffles didn't turn out very well. They taste fine, but they're kind of dry and they fall apart. I'm trying to figure out where I went wrong. I followed the recipe exactly. These are the truffles from the cooking class I took. I'll have to try again soon. I will say that they contain 72% cacao, so they are very rich!! Instead of cocoa powder, I dipped them in crushed Heath bar. That was a nice relief to the bittersweet chocolate.

I will try to get pics of the flourless torte. Hopefully it will turn out better than the truffles!

We do take out on Valentine's also. Especially now that we have kids. Who wants to fight that crowd!
