Decadent & delicious, this is a super simple recipe for truffles that you can make with your children. Why not make a few batches and take them as gifts at Christmas. The recipe makes about 40 truffles (depending upon how much you taste whilst making them!) and they store well in the fridge for a few days. If you want to keep them for longer put them in a sealed plastic container in the freezer.
They also taste really nice frozen – sometimes I just can’t wait the 15 minutes for them to defrost!
This recipe is from Isabel López Soto from La Murta and is included in the village cook book. You might like to try adding different liqueurs – mint or orange would be good!
