Truffles!


Eighty-ish chocolate raspberry truffles.  Half with a milk chocolate coating, half with a white chocolate.  Yes, they're messy.  They're also really rich, creamy and yummy.

Here's how they'll look when I give them out:





So, since everything except the popcorn is ready to go, and the popcorn is going in it's own little bag, I went ahead and got everything ready tonight.  I take back everything I said and/or thought about it not looking likemuch, or not being enough.  It took me over 2 hours to wrap up individual portions of each thing!  And that doesn't count the truffles, since they were already in their little paper cups.

I went from this:

Then I took another hour and sorted and wrapped them all into ready to go plates, bags, and bowls.  Thirteen to be exact.  Three big ones for teachers, and 10 smaller ones for neighbors and friends.  So tomorrow, I pop the corn, mix it with chocolate, bag it up, and give it all away!!  Then I get a couple days off from the kitchen.  Of course, those days will be spent doing heavy duty, company's coming cleaning.  And believe me, my kitchen needs it!

Sorry for 2 boring kitchen heavy posts in a row, but this is all I've been doing.  I'll try to get something more interesting up tomorrow!
