Diwali Baking #2

Part two in my Diwali baking endeavours! Also made during the excitement hype of my end of exams night was the Nutella Fudge and then today, I learnt about the delights of truffles – White chocolate and lemon to be precise 😀
These were made for a very special family I have known since birth… good friends with a preference for sans oeufs here’s to you!

How can I describe making these – they are fun, they are easy and when you get to eat Nutella by the spoonfuls, I think they are a pretty big part of your daily eating plan (is that just me, really?)

These small  (you can chop the fudge up largeor make HUGE balls of lemon truffles) delights are extremely amazingly delicious. The flavour punch you get from each is awesome and balance of flavours totally works!!!

These reminded me of a tea party – little girls (and boys who enjoy a good tea party) who find muffins, even cupcakes too big – these are just the right sized treats for you!

WARNING:
I must stress the addictivity level of this candy – be warned one piece will never be enough…

Nutella Fudge – From Wayfaring Chocolate (I love her addiction :P)

  • I couldn’t find sprinkles (how sad are my grocery markets) so I used colourful mini chocolate rocks instead (which REALLY look like candy Hershey’s kisses but so much cuter!)
  • I used a little (only a small bit) more Nutella – maybe 1 and 1/4 cup

White Chocolate Lemon Truffles – From Crumbly Cookie

  • She stated that these truffles were not lemony enough but due to textural issues, she didn’t want to change the recipe – WELL I DID 🙂
  • I increased the cream  by 1 tbs
  • I used the grated zest from two lemons
  • I used 4-5 tbs lemon juice – be sure that when you add it in on the last step, you mix thoroughly otherwise the juice sits around the corners of your cream mixture

    Hi Uru

    Those lemon truffles look divine. Reminds me of khoya-rolls from India. I used to insert a firm grape into every roll for a fresh twist. YUMMM if only there was a way to enjoy all this yummy stuff and not put on weight.

    • Wow I love the idea about a grape in the middle – what a surprise!
      I am a big fan of dried peaches, apricots and cranberries so placing that in the middle would be a good idea 🙂

      Aaah the issue of weight… I can’t help it because I believe my love for this delicious food beats that 😛
      oops…

      p.s. remind me to ask mum what a khoyo-roll is!

    *dances around the room* I’m so delighted that you loved the Nutella Fudge! It’s kind of magnificent, isn’t it? I’m also tremendously keen on your use of those tiny little chocolate rocks – I see them at my local Coles all the time and always want to buy them, but haven’t been able to justify it as I know I’ll end up eating them by the spoonful 😛 Also, hello! *waves*

    P.S. I love my addiction too 😉

    • Hello 😀 *waves back*
      Thank you for the brilliant recipe! I am glad it was made as a present otherwise I’d go around breaking chairs 😛
      I might just do that anyway because I did eat the little rocks by the spoonfuls 🙂
