Cardamom and Coffee Dark Chocolate Truffles
Is it just me or as December approaches, my cravings for chocolate & sweets in general increase drastically?
Every year, starting at around mid-November, I start envisioning all the delicious food I will be making for the holidays: the roasts, the cookies, the cakes, the stuffing, the little bite foods… Here is a short list of the recipes I am already considering making for the holidays, in case you are looking for some inspiration:
- Full of Plants’ Chocolate Mousse Praline Domes
- The Global Vegan’s Peanut Butter Crackle
- The First Mess’ Spinach & Mushroom Polenta Pie with Almond Ricotta
The holidays are probably one of my favorite time of the year for 2 big reasons: 1) the precious time spent with my loved ones 2) um… the food of course!
As I said, I know we are not in holiday season just yet, BUT, these little truffles would be perfect for the holidays as well as for any other occasion outside of them (aka even as a snack ;)).
These truffles basically came to be through my desire to incorporate cardamom into a recipe. After doing some research, I discovered that cardamom pairs well with coffee so I thought, why not create delicious Cardamom & Coffee Dark Chocolate Truffles.
These truffles are:
- Nutty and rich
- Sweet but also balanced
- Slightly bitter thanks to the power of coffee.
… a lovely little bite to add to your holiday menu.
On that note, happy start to the holiday season & if you do decide to make these truffles, make sure to share it on Instagram and tag me (@muriellebanackissa).
