In case you ever wondered what 772 chocolate truffles look like… wonder no more 🙂
As I told you in my previous post, my sister and I were pretty busy last week making these as Christmas Gifts for all our relatives. Every year we do something (usually some kind of cookie) to bring to family gatherings, but this year we decided to step it up a notch and, well, the result was awesome!
My sister, Cristina, spent her whole summer at a pastry campus at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Pâtisserie in France, and is now working as an apprentice in a Pastry shop in Milan, so most of the recipes we used (and some equipment) were kindly borrowed. We had a few hectic days, but I had tons of fun: I learned how to temper chocolate, fill the moulds, cover coconut in chocolate…I had a blast, and am kind of sad it’s all over! But I did take a few pictures for you to enjoy 🙂
We put 2 of each truffles in cardboard boxes with a note on each and an “instruction sheet”, explaining what was in each truffle, and this was the final look
I’m happy to say they were a success!
On a different note, I would like to thank Kristina, editor at Be @ Home, for giving me a “Creative Chef Award”; I never thought someone would appreciate my blog so much, and this award made for one happy girl!
