Saturday Recipes - Truffles!

Today I dream of trying all these wonderful truffle recipes.

I love truffles, they're so rich and soft and melt in your mouth - delicious! I think truffles are wonderful in the winter or on a windy day like today where I live.

My plan for tonight is just to snuggle on the couch with my blanket and a box of truffles and watch TV till I fall asleep :)

That's a great way to relax before another hard week of work - not that I have to worry about Monday this week, I'm off for a whole five days! :)

On Monday I'm going to see my favourite band, Kings of Leon, playing in my town and it's my boyfriend's birthday on Wednesday, so I need to recharge my batteries first this weekend!

White chocolate passion fruit truffles

I found this recipe on Technicolor Kitchen food blog and then I found two more that caught my eye so I'm sharing all of them with you! These truffles are soft and delicate, with a little zing from the  passion fruit - yum! Here's the recipe.

Dark chocolate, cinnamon and hazelnut truffles

That's sounds divine! Very rich and aromatic; a perfect Winter treat!

 White chocolate, cranberry and Cointreau truffles

This is a quite unusual combination of flavours but I think it works perfectly!

Wasabi Truffles

Talking about unusual flavour combinations... :) They are made with crystallized ginger and freshly grated daruma wasabi which is the milder of the two major wasabi varieties, with a slight sweetness in the aftertaste. Wow - I can't wait to try this recipe! Find it here.

White chocolate, mascarpone cheese, Marsala wine and good quality coffee - for me that sounds heavenly! Get the recipe here!
