This recipe was adopted from the RecipeZaar account. I havn't changed it at all. The original comments are as follows: This is the recipe where orange chocolate truffles originated from only with variations.
I referred to these in a post as Raspberry Wine Truffles, because I had used raspberry wine. I've also used black cherry. So the name is up to the wine you use. You can also make White Wine Truffles by using white instead of red. These DO improve with age. At least a few weeks of aging and the flavor is so good.
What could be a more romantic way to end a dinner than with truffles. I came across this quote recently-
"The truffle is not exactly an aphrodisiac, but it tends to make women more tender and men more likeable." - by French gastronome Brillat-Savarin
This is a recipe I found on the Internet in several different places. I love it, though I've found that some people find it too intense to enjoy. If you know someone who likes spicy food, this might not be a bad Valentine's Day treat. It starts off cool and sweet, but is spicy when it melts on your tongue. The ginger on the outside helps give a little bite at the start.
You'll want to make a double batch of these truffles. SOOOoooo easy and soooo good.I store them in the freezer and find they are still good after a couple of monthe but the original recipe said store in fridge and for up to a week. I reccommend that you use "Slide" no stick foil
These are absolutely amazing!!!!!!! I found a recipe for a chocolate truffle and decided to play around with the recipe to come up with a chocolate-coffee truffle. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Please, if you dont like coffee.. .dont make these! lol :-) Im not sure on servings... i guess I simply forgot to write this down..eeek! prep time does not include time for chilling, etc. Please not chilling times in the instructions. Cook time is estimated because melting chocolate isnt really a timed procedure for me! :-) ENJOY THESE!
This recipe is easy to make and popular in Iraq since one of the things that Iraq is famous for is dates. We have lots of varieties and kinds of dates from chewy to very hard. It is better to use this recipe with hard type of dates (called kasab) not soft, but you could use soft dates if you didn't find hard dates. Sometimes Ii use already-crushed dates from the market and it goes well too.
There are lots of varieties for the coating of the truffles, use as many coatings as you like according to your personal taste.
