Just in time for the #Mimouna.
The Mimouna was originally celebrated by mostly Jewish people from north African heritage, but by now, most of the Jewish people I know love to join in the festivities! ❤️
Who doesn't love a celebration right?
The Mimouna dinner party also celebrates the end of the Passover holiday, and with it, the Chametz limitations... Bread everywhere!
Usually there is a large variety of bite-sized, and very sweet candy treats served at the Mimouna.
This truffle recipe is my little contribution to your arsenal of sweets.
They are pretty and sweet, and very easy to make.
This is a very good recipe for your left over cake or cookies ***
I can write so many good things about dark chocolate, my personal opinion is very clear if you already know me :) I love it.
Now, as objectively as I can, I will write a little bit of important info about this amazing material
- It is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet
- 100 grams of Dark chocolate contains 11 grams of fiber
- Dark chocolate is rich in other nutrients, for example ,iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese
- It has been proven that consuming quality dark chocolate is linked to a reduction of heart disease
So, chocolate is amazing! Just make sure to choose quality dark chocolate and eat it in moderation!
Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking...
This recipe is so easy, it is practically a recipe for a lazy day The only song that fits is my son's absolutely favorite song (he is 3 ). The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars
Prep time: 10 min.
Cooling time: 2 hrs.
|Servings: 18-20 balls
* I don't normally add any sugar to my truffles because I like the rich flavor of the dark chocolate. I recommend trying the recipe without the sugar, and adding after tasting (as long as the mixture is still warm, the sugar will still dissolve).
** To create the marbleized color, I dropped 2 drops of oil based food coloring to the white chocolate and using a tooth pick, I swirled it once or twice. don't over swirl it as the color will become more unified with every swirl and with every truffle you drop in. over swirling will cause you to lose the marble effect so you will get a solid color.
*** This is a great recipe for any left over or stale cookies that you have but don't want to throw out!. Just crumble them up and add the the truffle mixture.
**** The truffles freeze really well (without the toppings) and can be kept in the freezer in a sealed container for up to 6 weeks.
