1/4 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur
6 ounces sweet chocolate, broken up
4 tablespoons sweet butter, softened
Boil cream in small heavy pan until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove from heat. Stir in liqueur and chocolate. Return to low heat. Stir until chocolate melts. Whisk in softened butter. When mixture is smooth, pour into a shallow bowl. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Scoop chocolate up with a teaspoon. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll the truffle balls in the unsweetened cocoa. Use a cool working area. Store truffles, covered, in the refrigerator. Let truffles stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
If you don’t mind using liqueur, there are many types of spirits you can use in this recipe for different flavors. In place of the Grand Marnier, try kahlua, Framboise, or Amaretto liqueurs.
Makes 20 truffles.
a couple days ago, I reached 1000 followers on my blog.
you are all amazing! I love engaging with my readers, comments, feedback, likes, I love them all and I love you all as well!
Thank you for liking my content enough to follow it. It means more than you know. I never thought when I started my blog that so many people would like reading what I have to say!
It tickles me that you do!
So thank you, everyone!
i thought it would be so awesome if we could do this, so, to all my followers and readers, please share in the comments box the links to your favourite blogs, so that we can all follow them too. and please reblog this post so others can join in too!
this is going out to all of our readers. do you get our posts in the reader? so many are following but only a handful are interacting and i am wondering where everyone else is? i love engaging with our readers and chatting in the comments section and i love it when people like our posts it is a real confidence booster and gives us a real sense of joy and pride. I guess what I am asking is does the wordpress reader show our posts? do most of you follow via the reader or do you get emailed with the new posts when we post?
I know there is trouble with the reader a lot of times. I guess I am a little nervous that I have over 900 followers and a whole bunch never interact with me at all and I am wondering are they even reading?
Let me know what your take is on readers, interacting etc. do you like interacting, think its important? personally I think its very important. if someone takes the time to comment on one of my posts then I am going to take the time to reply and respond to that person.
I guess my whole point is i would really like to get toknow the people who are reading but arent saying anything, i’d really like to know you and become friends if you find our blog useful and interesting.
so come on guys, please respond to me, do you like reader comments? think they are important? do you check your stats? i admit it, I do. religiously.
so today my question for all of you is
what one character trait do you wish you had but don’t?
upon me again
will it ever end?
overcome by pain
from this hell
how can i even tell
where this pain ends
and i begin?
do you like reality tv shows? Which are your favourites?
