Hello again everyone!

It’s so good to be back again after so many weeks away from home.

I spend my days baking and preparing for the holidays, and if you follow passion4baking on SnapChat you already know that I made old fashioned caramel fudge today.

No caramel fudge – no Christmas! If you want the recipe, check out the first issue of my digital magazine here.

Here I’m using freeze dried raspberries from dr.Oetker, I just love the flavor!

The decorations come in a strawberry and blueberry version, too, also super delicious.

Dr. Oetker’s freeze dried decorations consist of 100% berries, nothing else.

I use a small ice cream scoop here, just place a ball of the just set chocolate mixture onto the freeze dried berries.

Roll in the berries until the truffle is completely covered.

These truffles are just amazing, and perfect for the holidays. They also make a great gift!

Or why not enjoy them with a good book over the holidays?

  1. Hi, I want ask you how long I need to cool chocolate-heavy cream mixture before rolling in freeze dried fruits? Thank you for the answer!

      Hi Monika, that depends on the temperature of the room, and of type of chocolate you are using. Just check that it is firm enough to shape into balls.
