It’s the first Friday of the month again! At least, it was. Two days ago.

 

Truffles

 

Every month, the first Friday, a group of an awesome talented bloggers make a themed dish from the famed chef Ina Garten’s unlimited reservoir of dishes.

    I love good chocolate truffles and these look heavenly! How do I stay away from eating them all is a good question. :)

    I made truffles recently and the men in my family ate every single one of them. Don’t let them see yours!

    Hi Minnie,
    You really got it right on how to serve truffles –with a nice mug of coffee! It just washes the truffle down so nicely and then you take another bite. Mmmm.

    Mmmmm, truffles. These look perfect and I love your photos :)
    Easy is good in my book, especially if it produces this.

    Coffee and chocolate belong together…. on my table, actually. I promised me I wouldn’t make anything this decadent for the next few weeks. Promises can be broken.

    Oh, Minnie! Truffles, how do i love thee? Yours with the 3 chocolates sound irresistible. I noticed Maureen’s comment and have to agree. Don’t set the serving platter near me unless you’ve got another in the kitchen. :)

    Chocolate truffles are a huge weakness of mine and I know if I had a batch of these right now, I’d be munching away. Love the coffee chocolate combo!

    You can’t go wrong with a good chocolate truffle! I usually eat them around Christmas but I’m such a chocolate fan I’d eat them any time!
