Chocolate truffles and dulce de leche. My sweetest recipe
I always take advantage of the remains of the cake that I have at home or even muffins that I try to enrich with candied fruits, nuts, chocolate or similar and always covered in chocolate.
Include in the Christmas sweet tray, some chocolate truffles and sponge cakeor some chestnut and chocolate trufflesor my sister-in-law's favorites, the chocolate truffles and rum.
I always freeze the truffles or at least, almost always, it is a joy to have a whim so close at hand to brighten up individual moments of the day.
The truth is that sometimes I wonder why I don't truffles more often with how rich they are
