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.
Kids love them, and so do I…
I also made these delicious raspberry truffles today, I just loved the flavor of the freeze dried raspberry decorations combined with chocolate!
Here is the recipe!
Holiday Raspberry Truffles
- 10 ½ oz. (300 g) good quality dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 ¼ cup (150 ml) heavy cream
- 3 tbsp runny honey
- 2 tbsp butter
- Freeze dried raspberries (dr. Oetker), to decorate
Place the chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl.
Pour the heavy cream into a saucepan. Add the honey and butter and heat until almost boiling.
Pour over the chocolate.
And stir with a whisk until melted and smooth.
Stir until nice and shiny.
Set aside until the mixture starts to set.
Here I’m using freeze dried raspberries from dr.Oetker, I just love the flavor!
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?
Do you have a book recommendation for me? Preferably something romantic…
I hope you are tempted to make these holiday raspberry truffles, I know you’ll love them.
I wish you a lovely evening, and Merry Christmas to those of you who don’t have the chance to pop in again before the holidays.
Hugs from me to you.
