chocolate truffles

on monday i went for a long walk. it's amazing how just a few minutes from here feel like a totally different world, with the river and forest. it was warm, so warm that i took off my tights later on. it also was the first time i took out my pair of converse this year..

this year i had decided not to buy any chocolate for easter but to make my own chocolate truffles. i used a recipe from mia öhrn (who is also the publisher behind josefin ekman's "pyssel deluxe") and they turned out wonderful! i forgot to take pictures and they are almost gone now , but at least i thought i'd give you the recipe:

for 20-30 truffles you need:
150g dark chocolate, finely grated
150g nougat, chopped into small pieces
150ml cream
2 teaspoons of honey

200g dark chocolate for topping/dipping

bring the cream to a boil together with the honey, take it quickly from the heat, put the grated chocolate and chopped nougat into it and stir quickly so it melts. let cool down to room temperature and put it into the fridge over night. the next day, take it out of the fridge and roll small balls or eggs, put them back into the fridge to cool down again.

melt the chocolate either in a microwave or over boiling water and dip the truffles into the melted chocolate. place onto a plate with baking paper and let cool down. enjoy!
