Scrumptious Chocolate Truffles

The lovely Miss Jen is sharing an exquisite chocolate recipe with us today...

Chocolate Truffles

Rich, semi.. bittersweet chocolate truffles
are rolled in creamy scrumptious milk chocolate
and topped with a
special sprinkling of gourmet salt.

Sounds too adventurous?...
I would encourage you to try it~
the combination of flavors is simply wonderful.

Oh... the delights of freshly chopped

Freshly dipped truffles.....*sigh*

Chocolate Truffles with Sea Salt

recipe courtesy~ Tasty Kitchen

8 ounces, weight (up To 9 Oz.) Good Semisweet Chocolate
8 ounces, weight (up To 9 Oz.) Good Bittersweet Chocolate
1 can (14 Oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
8 ounces, weight Meltable Milk Chocolate
Sea Salt, Kosher Salt
or Sparkling Sprinkles

Chop semisweet and bittersweet chocolates.
Heat dark chopped chocolates and condensed milk in a double
boiler over medium low heat until chocolate is melted.
Stir—mixture will have a slight marshmallow texture. Stir in vanilla.
Remove from heat, cover and refrigerate for two hours.
Once chilled, roll in balls, then roll in melted milk chocolate coating.
Place truffles on a sheet of parchment paper.
Sprinkle with salt or other fine, coarse sprinkles.

"These are delicious and very easy-to-make chocolate truffles with an

unlikely surprise: a sprinkling of light, fluffly sea salt.
It’s a seemingly unlikely, but absolutely scrumptious and special,
flavor combination that has to be experienced to be believed."
~Mrs. Ree Drummon

There are an endless amount of possibilities
in the ways you can package these goodies for loved ones....
using~ boxes, baggies, ribbons and etc...
I packaged mine in some small clear cellophane bags
and tied them with a crisp red sparkling ribbon.

"There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate,
dark chocolate, white chocolate, and
Chocolate Truffles."

.....Do Enjoy!

Hope you are having a simply lovely day.
~Many Blessings~

Having just turned 19, Jen finds great joy in serving her family from home. She firmly believes that the home is a beautiful canvas for biblical hospitality, servanthood and discipleship.  All aspects of homemaking are on her list of interests including gourmet cooking, baking, calligraphy, sewing and embroidery. She is also inspired by photography, music, theology and biblical womanhood. Miss Jen blogs at Blessed Femina, which she founded in the fall of 2008 to document her blessed life as a daughter/homemaker-in- training and to encourage other women in Biblical femininity. Happily residing in sunny northern California with her parents, it is her greatest desire to live a life depicted in I Corinthians 10:31: “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
