Frozen Chocolate Truffles

Holaaaa!

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the summer. Hot summers in Maryland, but no complaints from me. I really enjoy an ice-cold sorbet or a BIG scoop of ice cream. A few days ago while having a chocolate ice cream, I had the desire for a truffle. I love frozen truffles, so I made them.  You can find these truffles in a lot of bakeries in Spain. I used to make them with my mom a few years ago.

The beauty is that once you have prepared the chocolate mixture, you can make all of the truffles and keep them in the freezer for a while.

You can enjoy these truffles with a cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon, for dessert in the evening or just a guilty pleasure anytime! They are small, so who’s counting calories?!

Also, my nephew is 3 years old he loves them, so they have to be good, right!?

Ingredients:

– one pint whipping cream

– 3/4 cup dark chocolate

– 1/2 cup milk chocolate

– chocolate sprinkles

Whip the cream less than you would when making whipped cream. You want a softer consistency, not stiff.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a non-stick saucepan or a double boiler. Fold in the whipped cream to the chocolate sauce and stir to make sure the chocolate is totally melted and incorporated into the whipped cream.

Pour into a flat shallow dish, place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface and refrigerate for  at least 2 hours (You can keep it in the fridge overnight).

Once the mixture has a firm consistency, roll each truffle between the palms of your hands and then roll them onto a plate filled with chocolate sprinkles.

Place them in a single layer and then put them in the freezer. After 30 minutes, the truffles will have a firmer consistency and you will be able to handle them better.

Remember, they will melt if left out in a warm temperature. Easy, right? Serve frozen.

Bon profit!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
