Hot Chocolate Truffles
1C White chocolate buttons
1/4 C Cream
pinch of salt
Place all ingredients in a bowl and place in microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Continue heating in 20 second bursts (I only needed two more) until you get a smooth consistency.
Cover and place in fridge for at least 3 hours.
Place heaped tablespoonfuls onto clingfilm and wrap. Place in freezer overnight.
Now to make these into the yummiest hot chocolate you've ever tasted! All you need to do is put 1 1/4 C milk into a cup, add a truffle and pop in microwave for 2 minutes. Stir until all mixed in, and ENJOY! (You might want to let it cool a little first!)
Note: They actually stayed in their truffle shape this time!
You will remember from my last post, the troubles I was having with the fondant. Yesterday I decided to give it another go. I only had blue and pink colouring on-hand so was a bit limited as to what I could make. It's my daughters birthday next week so thought I would attempt to make some kiddy shapes - teddy bear, cat, mouse, ladybird (which ended up as some sort of armadillo type creature!). After many trials, Tegan suggested making animated monsters, and I have to say that was quite fun - not to mention easier to pass off "Yea I meant for it to look that way"
I'm sure that with more practice I will master this fondant! But all in all, I don't think it was too bad an effort. At least my kids think I'm awesome :) and they can tell what each decoration is, so that's gotta be a good thing.
On a side note - Eli told me all his friends think I'm the best baker ever, cos he keeps bringing my cupcake creations to school for his morning tea :)
