Simple Chocolate Truffles

This week is all about chocolate in “SaltyBiscotti”. Chocolate Truffles for today. That`s a personal favorite, one of the first desserts I ever made.

Having this little treat at home can totally make up your mood. But I am warning you, it is totally addictive. You will not be able to move away from the fridge.

The following recipe is my aunt`s recipe and I if I remember correctly, she tought me when I was around 15.

The presentation and the pictures are not good at all. For some reason, truffles were very difficult to capture. Not sure on the issues yet. Plus, I was eating the whole time I was shooting, so maybe that was the problem…

Anyway, read below the full recipe and give it a try. You will love it. And I am sure that you can take much better shots. Now, let me grab my recipe`s notebook and tell you all about that little Choco taste.
