Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles is one delicacy that no one can refuse. The roasted hazelnut compliments the rich cacao powder. Store the truffles in container in the fridge for up to 5 days, but they will disappear from the fridge a lot faster, trust me on this.
Chocolat Hazelnut Truffles
If you don't have hazelnuts, feel free to use almonds, cashews, walnuts or any other nuts you like. Just don't forget to roast them in the oven before making the truffles. Fresh nuts taste way better.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the nuts in an even layer on the baking sheet, and roast it for 10-15 minutes. Stirring every 3 minutes. Check the nuts. You are looking for the color to be a few shades darker. When the nuts are browned and smell nutty, remove from the oven and transfer onto a plate. Cool it and clean from the flakes. I like my truffles extra tiny, so I cut each hazelnut in half. You don't have to cut them if you are making large truffles.
Bring the heavy cream to a boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips. Wait 1-2 minutes until chocolate melts.
Whisk until smooth. Place it in the frizzer for about 2 hours, until firm enough to roll.
Use a teaspoon or small cookie scoop to portion the ganache, hide one hazelnut inside each piece, roll the balls between hands, until smooth and place on a plate.
Refregirate for at list 1 hour.
Excellent Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies. I’ve tried a lot of different chocolate chip cookie recipes, and this one is the best one by far. They have the right balance of flavor and texture. My kids remove them from the oven as soon as the edges turn gold. They don’t look done when they are, so be carefully not to burn the bottoms.
Chocolate Chip and Nut Cookies
Dough balls may be frozen, which is very convenient when you have someone coming over. Don't forget to add some extra time to the baking.
Preheat oven to 380 degrees F. Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Beat together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla sugar.
Little by little add sifted flour ,mixed with salt and baking soda.
Add chocolate chips and mix well.
Spoon out the cookie dough using a cookie scoop(use your hand if you don't have cookie spoon) and place on the parchment lined baking sheet. Divide the nuts and seeds on top of the each cookie and gently press down on the dough ball to flatten slightly.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are set but the middle is still soft.
Let cool cookies for few minutes then transfer them with a spatula to a rack to cool completely.
Enjoy it with glass of milk or your favorite tea.
