Wow! I'm halfway there! Yesterday I made chocolate truffles. I used this recipe from Food Network's Alton Brown. I wanted them to be extra-good, so I used all Ghiradelli chocolate in them. Making the filling was very easy. Getting the balls coated in chocolate? Not so easy. I was freaking out for the first ten or so truffles. Sleek was right there, offering support in whichever way was needed. (It was mostly emotional support.) LOL!
After coating them in chocolate, I rolled them in either cocoa powder, toasted chopped pecans or toasted, unsweetened coconut. I have to say, they are off the hook! Even Sleek liked them, and he doesn't really like chocolate that much.
I have to admit, I couldn't even rock any tunes while working on these. I had to devote my full concentration to the truffles. I kind of got the hang of it toward the end, and next time it will be much easier, I think.
