Blackberry Liqueur Chocolate Truffles

Hola!!

I talked to my mom on the phone yesterday and she told me that she made chocolate truffles. That gave me the thought of making them myself. That’s all the inspiration I need! I did want to add my own little spin on them so I added a little Blackberry Liqueur. Berries and Chocolate go great together!

Let’s jump into the recipe:

  • 8 ounces 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate (use good quality chocolate)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons soft butter
  • 3 tablespoons Blackberry Liqueur (feel free to add an extra one!)
  • Toppings: unsweetened cocoa powder, crushed nuts (I used pistachios), chocolate sprinkles. (Be creative and add your own topping)

Fill bottom of double boiler with water and place on low heat. Place chocolate chips and the heavy cream in the top of double boiler and allow it to melt. Once the chocolate is almost melted, add the butter and whisk. Add the blackberry liqueur and stir until the chocolate has completely melted and all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

Pour the mixture into a flat shallow dish and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface. Refrigerate for at least 90 minutes.

Scoop the truffle mixture (I used a small scooper) and roll each by hand into bite-sized balls. Roll each into the toppings and enjoy!

Bon profit and Happy Holidays!

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.
