This isn’t so much a recipe, just a few things put together quickly for a decadent treat. A couple of weeks ago by daughter Samara called and said she found the deal of the century at Tuesday Morning. Dark Chocolate Cordial Cups marked down to fifty-cents for a box of 12. When she asked how many boxes I wanted, I modestly replied “4” and she mailed them to me. She is such a sweetie pie. Thank you punkin!

They arrived from Dallas in peak condition and I let them sit in the freezer for a few days while I narrowed down the cazillion ideas I had for them. Also languishing in the freezer was some chocolate cake. Then like a bolt of sweet lightening the idea was born. The chocolate cups were the perfect vessel for creamy chocolate cake truffle lightly sprinkled with crushed hazelnut brittle. Oh yes, life is sweet!

I piped the truffle mix into the chocolate cups with a pastry bag. If you don’t have one spoon the mixture into a resealable bag and snip off one end. When piping the truffle into the cups place the open end of the bag deep inside so that the cups are completely filled. Restraint was my middle name the day I made these. I only had one and packed the rest and shared them with my coworkers this time. Being a wellness instructor and walking in with a box of over the top mini desserts you sometimes get strange looks. Then when the box is opened you get smiles. After that I invite everyone to join me for a workout. It’s all good!

  1. Get OUT!!!!!! She found these for just 50 cents per box?!?!??!?!?! I almost never check the food aisle at Tuesday Morning. I sure wish I had now!!! These are so great for desserts like you made as well as serving after-dinner cordials. I don’t care for chocolate, but I know pretty much everyone else on the planet does and I want to have stuff like this around…especially during the Spring when there’s still a bit of chill in the air and we’re entertaining more!!! Oh, geez…I’m going to check out at least one of the Tuesday Morning stores around here tomorrow morning to see if it has any. If not, I’ll give it up. I was JUST BY TWO other Tuesday Mornings this afternoon!!! Should have taken advantage!

    These desserts are so pretty, and they really make a statement when served up the way you have them here. Beautiful!!!

    • I’ve been sitting here with Gabbi getting her ideas on what I should do with the rest of them. For a kid that doesn’t care for many desserts she sure has lots of ideas. They probably won’t come to fruition but I appreciate her input. You have so many home shopping stores around you how are you not in the stores everyday!?
