Truffles

I’ve never actually made this for mo-hubbs before, but it’s a recipe that I recently discovered that I really like.

Truffles:

3/4 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup cold water
2 cups bittersweet chocolate
cocoa powder

Put cashews and cold water in a blender and blend at high speed for 1-2 minutes.

Scrape the sides down and blend again until the mixture is the consistency of heavy cream.

Meanwhile, in a double boiler heat the chocolate until it’s all melted.

Cool the chocolate until it’s comfortable to work with and fold in the cashew cream (making sure not to stir too fast or you’ll create bubbles).

Cool in the fridge for 2 hours (to set).

Take out a small ball, roll in cocoa powder and store in fridge/freezer.

Repeat until done.
