I am usually not a person who makes a lot of chocolates, cooking with chocolate at home is mostly about baking. I have indeed tried by hands at truffles before and everyone in the family loved it, but still somehow I never went back to baking them. But for the past sometime O had been asking me “mumma lets make some chocolates” and I have been telling him soon, so when Cosmopolitan approached me sometime ago about their “Digital Media Issue” the whole thing kind of fell in place. So their idea was that they will give three bloggers a hero ingredient to work with and we had to come up with an easy and yummy recipe… something that can be easily out together by people at home.
I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to make those chocolates that I have been thinking about forever and nutella sigh how can I miss out one of my most favorite ingredients from it, tell me? So I decided to make “White Chocolate & Nutella Truffles” and kid you not they were delicious, I also added a bit of chilli in them to give them a nice hit… It balanced the sweetness of white chocolate beautifully, I have a feeling that rum would have been a perfect addition to the same, I can almost imagine a strong hit of rum working magically with this combo but sadly I didn’t add any to it, come on I was making them for O and I am after all a good mother.
