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!
Wishing you a Valentine’s Day full of love, hugs and laughter.
