WIP Wednesday

August 22, 2012 | WIP Wednesday

Each mech warrior courts his lady in his own special way. As part of Gideon’s campaign to win Tori’s heart, he made truffles. There are endless variations on this decadent, but easy to make confection. An overview of his effort is mentioned in book. For those wanting to actually whip up their own batch, here’s Gideon’s recipe:

6 ounces of semi-sweet baking chocolate
2 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
4 Tb Jamaican rum
2 Tb espresso
1 stick unsalted butter cut into 1 inch pieces
6 ounces homemade gingersnaps to make 3/4 cup pulverized
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup instant coffee (instant espresso super fine powder is best)
Foil or paper candy cups

Break up the chocolates and place in a small sauce pan with the liquor and liquid coffee. Cover and set chocolate pan in a larger pan of boiling water and turn off the heat. When the chocolate is melted and smooth (about five minutes) beat in the butter piece by piece (a portable electric mixer helps), the beat in the pulverized gingersnaps. Chill for several hours.

Mix the cocoa and coffee powders on a plate. Use a spoon to dig out lumps of the chocolate mixture and form it into rough balls. Roll these in the powder and set each truffle in a candy cup. Refrigerate in a covered container until time to serve. The truffles will keep well for several weeks or they may be frozen.

Warning, like the hero who makes them, these are hard to resist! :heart:
