Coconut Filled Nutella Truffles; A Sweet Treat to say Goodbye

2:46 AM


How are you my dear friends? Did you miss me? I know you have, all your pouring  mails and worrying comments prove that. This time I wont thank you because with time you all have become a part of my support system. A very important and indispensable part of my life. I have written several times why I started this blog but never did I expect this would be such a precious hideout place for me. I always wanted to be with you when I felt depressed, wanted to share when I was ecstatic and it wont be a overstatement to say that I have always got what I have asked from you, your unconditional support. But with all these depressing phases in my life I really dont feel like writing and posting recipes. And taking another break seems inevitable. But unlike other times this time am not sure when I would be back. It doesnot seem right to go for numerous breaks every now and then. I need to sort things and make time for my blogging first before I decide to come back.


On another note suddenly something has come up and we are shifting to Kolkata. Though Its a great move for both of us but it's so unexpected that we are totally jeopardized at this moment. We are not prepared  and arranging the relocation on the shortest notice is driving us nuts. But in all these we are sad to leave Bangalore. We are emotional as this city has given us so much. Its the place where we started our life as a couple. I still remember the day when I entered this house containing only a mattress and TV. It brings smile on my face every time I think of those numerous trips to all the shopping malls for buying things to create a home for us. Every item in my house has a story to tell which I will always keep closer to my heart. We brought our son to this house and he loved the open, airy spaces and the garden, where he took his fist steps. This beautiful city  has welcomed a new bride with open hands, where we have made  many friends for life and made us wiser with time. I will carry many a moments which I will remember all my life and before leaving I want to give a giant bear hug to this city if possible. I will definitely miss this house and this place and most probably will keep on visiting for business interest.

Before I proceed here are a few memories of our home we are leaving behind.

Coconut Filled Nutella Truffles
This is the easiest dessert I have made and also the most elegant and gorgeous looking treats. Made this during Christmas time to woo Sonny boy's friends and they genuinely loved it.

The truffle recipe belongs to sunita and I just created one easiest stuffing recipe to give it that extra punch.

Ingredients:
For the filling:
Grated coconut: ½ cup (I used fresh)
Sugar: 3 tbsp
Milkmaid: 3 tbsp
For the truffle:
I halved Sunita's recipe
Nutella: 200 gms (½ bottle)
Cooking Chocolate: ¼ cup (grated)
Butter: 2 tsp
She used honey which I omitted.

For rollling or covering the truffles use anything you like. I have used
Coco powder
Dessicated coconut
Coloured vermicellis
Chocolate vermicelli
Pistachios
Melted chocolate
And a thick paste made with lemon juice and castor sugar to drizzle

Method:
for the filling mix everything together in thick bottomed pan or kadhai. Cook on low till you get dry lumpy mixture (5-7 minutes). Dont over cook as it  browns easily.
Keep it aside to cool.

In the mean time mix all the ingredients in a micro safe bowl and micro for 2 minutes. Take out and whisk with a spoon to check if the chocolate has melted. Otherwise micro for another minute or two.
Whisk with a spoon to mix everything together and as it will cool down it will start coming off as a dough.

Cover with plastic wrap and chill for an hour.

Once the chocolate mixture is ready to be rolled pinch a small portion, stuff with a tiny amount of coconut mixture. Cover and roll between your palms to make a smooth ball. Repeat with the rest of the quantity.

To decorate you can roll them in dessicated coconut, chocolate vermicelli, coco powder  or decorate them with chopped nuts.

I dipped some of the truffles in melted chocolate and chilled them on a toothpick. Later decorated them with a very thick paste of lemon juice and castor sugar.

Place each on mini muffin cups and Store in fridge.

Before serving keep them at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften.

on another note Arusuvai Friendship Chain is still open. If you are interested please join in. Even if am not blogging actively but will continue this chain as long as we have interested participants. I will also update the running round up as and when new posts come up.

  26. Although we have never met nor have we spoken but it feels like a family member leaving. I am sure you are feeling the pain of moving so I will not remind you of it again. All I will say is best of luck and god give you everything you need to make the best of life at your new place. Will miss you and I know you will be back (its difficult to keep away from your passion!)
    Love and hugs my dear..
