Yesterday in the World of Truffles

Picked up a nice, used fridge in Calexico, melted and mixed 30lbs of bittersweet chocolate with 4.5 lbs of butter, three gallons of heavy cream and various flavorings. Six pounds of white chocolate was mixed with 1.5 lbs of butter, 12 egg yolks, vanilla beans, and other wonderful things.

My niece photographed the rolling and dipping parts of the dark truffles and the melting and mixing part of the white ones. as soon as she gets the pics uploaded i'll post them with commentary.

These are the flavors that are being rolled and dipped over the next few days. The decoration scheme is how I tell them apart.

Raspberry- - - White Stripes, Red Sparkles
Jessie’s Peppermint Stick - - - Peppermint bits, White Stripes
Sofia’s Mexicali Spice- - - Cinnamon Dust, Dark Stripes
Classic Bittersweet- - - Dark Stripes
Chambord- - -Milk Stripes, Red Sparkles
Frangelico- - - Milk & White Stripes
Starbuck’s Coffee- - - Milk and Dark Stripes
Calvados- - -Red & Milk Stripes
White Chocolate- - -White Stripes
Jessie O’s Raspberry Creme - - -White Stripes, Red Sparkles

The next few days are all about rolling and dipping.

I came to the comments to say exactly what pogo has already said, Man you're killing me.

Freakin' drool is covering the keyboard and dripping all over the damned carpet. Sheech, who's going to pay to get the carpet cleaned? Do you have a lawyer? I may need to contact him.

(leaves keyboard and goes in serious search of chocolate candy with drool flying around like crazy)

Okay, I give in, what do I have to do to get on the list? I'll find some way to pay for the shipping, it sounds sooo worth it just to have a frangelico and chambord truffle. Mom likes bittersweet...I hate giving money to Godiva

On knees pleading with the uncaring universe. :)
