Well this was a fun and eventful week!
We had a Kitchen Knives Giveaway to boot. Also, Good Cook’s Touch Treasure Hunt started this week! Then there was my Chicken Cashew Meatballs guest post, and finally, Pompeian’s contest for an all-expense paid trip to BlogHer Food ’13!
Can we just take a breath? Let’s absorb all this and have a stiff drink…I think a shot of moonshine might help me wind down.
Or a few of these Banana, Orange and Chocolate Truffles…
Okay. So. I know they’re not real truffles, but… You know… They’re round(?) (doesn’t that count?!)
It’s been ages since we talked about chocolate around here… like, a week, but still…in my time, that was ages ago.
I made these for my dad. He asked me to make him something sweet, with fruits and nuts, but without butter.
My response to that request? —-> Ummmm. Oooookaaaay.
Next thing you know I’m mashing a banana that’s completely black, grinding graham crackers and nuts, and hoping and praying that I didn’t eat that last XL chocolate bar…
Surprise surprise! I did eat it! At this point I’m sort of panicking, but keepin’ my cool.
..back to the drawing board.
and powdered cocoa it is.
A little warning about these babes – don’t try the mixture before you shape it. Seriously! You will eat it all and the “truffles” part will never happen. I’m speaking from experience… Yes, they are that good!
These little bon-bon thingamajiggers are the kind of thing that you sit down and eat mindlessly while watching an interview with New Kids On The Block!!! I was in HEAVEN!!!
…And it was 10 a.m. I should be ashamed. They were supposed to be for my Dad.
I had to make them again. For my dad. And for you.
