(SNN) - Four days of trying, and my Christmas truffles still aren’t made!
Day 1 – Need last minute goodies for a Christmas concert by young piano students. Defrosted chocolate mixture leftover from Easter. Mixture was very dry, so I added ½ cup of orange brandy. Then it dawned on me, “I can’t take these to a church, for children!” Put truffle mixture in fridge and bought goodies instead.
Day 2 – Back to making truffles. Mixture has gone dry again. Added ½ cup of orange brandy for the second time and began shaping the balls, tasting as I went. Felt strangely sleepy. Put mixture back in fridge. Took a nap.
Evening of Day 3 – Make myself return to shaping truffles. Mixture has dried out again. Added ½ cup of orange brandy and made 6 balls, tasting as I went. Felt funny. Phoned boyfriend to come over for the night.
Day 4 – Forced myself to return to the blasted truffles. Mixture so dry today the blade on the food processor won’t turn. Dumped in 1 cup of orange brandy. You know what happened... I should have thrown the mixture out days ago, but that would have violated the 11th Commandment – Thou shalt not waste chocolate. Merry Christmas!
