The stars in the sky look down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
Pooped from all the festivities!
Jax relaxing, ready to make some truffles!
They MUST be packaged in a fun way!
The finished product.
1/2 lb bittersweet chocolate (Lindt is good)
1/2 lb semisweet chocolate (Ghiradelli is good)
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon prepared coffee
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cocoa powder, confectioners sugar, sprinkles, nuts etc. (to cover the truffle)
Place chocolates in heat proof mixing bowl.
Heat cream until it just boils & allow to sit for about 20 secs. Pour through a fine mesh sieve into the chocolate. Add vanilla & coffee. Stir with wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Set aside for an hour. (recipe says @ room temp, but after the hour at room temp I put it in the refrigerator for about 30 mins to help it set) Scoop out & roll in your hands to form balls. Roll in topping of your choice. Refrigerate, serve @ room temp.
It was soooo pretty-wish I had a pic of the cake & the awesome buffet!
