Chocolate Truffles flavoured with Cinnamon & Chillies for Magic Mingle


I  Heart Chocolate Truffles..Well I Heart Chocolates..Its like I am addicted to chocolate and nothing can  make me instantly happy except a bar or two of chocolate..When I am in a far most tension, a bar of dark chocolate will do the trick instantly and When I am in my extreme happiness a piece of milk chocolate knows what to do..Sometimes dark chocolate chips have been my munch down snack…I know there is nothing more to say about the love I have for chocolate..



And Did you see the title “Magic Mingle”..It is a awesome challenge started by Kalyani. Its like each month we should unite two unique ingrediants and produce one awesome dish that features that ingredient as a hero or heroine..I totally loved it because it made me think so much before I created this awesome stuff..Thanks kalyani for hosting this awesome challenge..


This month’s magic ingrediants are Cinnamon & Chilli. They are the perfect combo and perfect match among the list of ingredient. I squeezed my brain for past whole week and finally decided to make this chocolaty rich truffles which is spiced up with these stuffs..I gave a tiny little kick with the chilli and tons of earthy flavour with those cinnamon..How could these go wrong.. And the result was pretty promising..


The idea for this came from a chocolate bar which my brother brought for me from his visit to UK..Actually it is a Chilli Chocolate Bar, a good bar of chocolate which is kicked up with chillies..I totally loved the combo..Hence this truffles are born..I actually made this for the special day which I mentioned earlier in one of my post..My fiancée totally loved this one and finished everything in one go..I hope you too will love it..


So without any more delay off you go to the recipe..

Modified From: JoyofBaking

Ingrediants:

Dark Chocolate – 225 grams / 8 ounces
Butter - 30 gms / 1 ounce

Dry Red Chillies – 2

For Outer Coating:
Confectioners Sugar / Icing Sugar
Cocoa
Dessicated Coconut
Choco Dessicated Coconut ( I mixed some cocoa with dessicated coconut)

Method:

Put chocolate and butter in a heavy bottom pan and melt on low heat untill melted. You could melt it in either double boiler or microwave.

Now take heavy cream in a sauce pan..Add chilli and cinnamon in it and heat it up…Let the heat be low as possible..

When you see bubbles around the edges switch off the flame and remove the chilli and cinnamon from the cream with a slotted spoon.

Pour this cream over the melted chocolate and butter and mix well..

Pour this into a shallow bowl and set in the fridge for 3-4 hours untill the chocolate has set..

Take a spoon and scoop some chocolate out of the bowl and roll it in your hands..You could wear a gloves if you need.

Put it in a foil lined tray and put it back in the fridge for atleast 30 mins to 1 hour to set.

Now take the truffles out of the fridge and coat it with your favorite coating.

Serve immediately Put it back in the fridge untill you serve.
