National Truffle Day

It’s National Truffle Day. No, not that kind of truffle. Not the kind you hunt with pigs or dogs, such as these:

Not fungi. This kind of truffle:

National Truffle Day is observed annually on May 2nd.  On this day, the deliciously sweet chocolate truffle gets the spotlight.

This chocolate confectionery is traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate, icing, cocoa powder, chopped nuts or coconut.  The truffle may be filled with other fillings such as cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, fruit, nougat, fudge, toffee, mint, marshmallow or liqueur.

Yum. Chocolate truffles. Peanut butter truffles. White chocolate truffles. Salted caramel truffles. Let your imagination run wild.

Who doesn’t like truffles?  Here’s a link to some delicious recipes, courtesy of Martha Stewart.  Here’s a link to my favorite truffle recipe. Delicious and easy to make, using ingredients that you’re more likely to have on hand than the recipes Martha uses.

All it takes is sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter. (Add a dash of vanilla, too, because vanilla always brings out the flavor of chocolate.) Roll in whatever appeals that you have on hand and voila! Delicious.

Enjoy National Truffle Day!

  3. FEAR-mongering for political gain is a typical Progressive tactic. Democrats are hurting real people with their scary shrieking about death
    by Republican. The grandstanding by GOP senators unwilling to repeal
    a single federal gimme from Obamacare is more of the same self-serving nonsense. Continuing Obamacare’s messed up system is not good for
    the healthy or the sick.

    Eighty thousand people “helped” by Obamacare are NO Longer HERE to agree with …. Ronald Reagan’s famous quote: “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government & I’m here to Help.”
