Hazelnut Truffles [sms]

Photobucket

This week's SMS choice was Hazelnut Truffles and was chosen by Anne of Living Life Foodcariously. I had brought these along with the ice cream cupcakes to a meeting and everyone enjoyed the chocolate-y truffles that seemed very expensive and too high class for us college students.

I had made these truffles with the Green and Black's Organic chocolate because the store nearby had a sale and decided to splurge a little more after finding the hazelnuts and buy this really nice chocolate.

Sory for the blurry picture, I think I was in a hurry because I had a lot to do this week.

The truffle was easy to make after getting all the ingredients together. I personally didnt have any semisweet chocolate in my place, so I mixed the milk and the dark chocolates together ending up with a 60% cocoa content...so that's about the content of semisweet chocolate. I also subbed the alcohol for almond extract since I am underage therefore no alcohol. =]

bowl as I was scooping it out.

The truffles were super easy to put together and I had covered with rice krispies crushed together and another couple with graham cracker crumbs.

These were super fun to make and super delicious as well.

I also added small pieces of this in the ice cream portion of my Raspberry Chocolate Ice Cream Cupcake.
