And the Giveaway Winner is...



I made these very boozy truffles with my friend & dearest neighbour Neelu...she is not that into baking or desserts but was very keen to make these boozy truffles for some reason ;-) After much argument on the flavours we settled for Champagne, Lemon-Limoncello & Strawberry-Cardamom(cant believe she hates cardamom and it took a while to convince her). 
For The Truffles
Ingredients
Dark Chocolate 250g
Heavy Cream 125ml
Butter 2tbsp
Egg Yolks 2
Method:
Make a ganache by warming cream and add the chopped chocolate and stir till smooth. Slowly add the butter & yolks and stir.
For the Champagne Truffles - add a 1/4 cup of good champagne to the mixture. Chill it preferably overnight and next day using a melon scooper scoop out the truffles. Roll them in Cocoa or Icing sugar.
For the Strawberry-Cardamom Truffles - Add a couple of pods of cardamom while warming the cream and strain. Add 2tbsp of Creme de Fraise. Chill it preferably overnight and next day using a melon scooper scoop out the truffles. Roll them in Cocoa or Icing sugar & some freeze dried raspberry powder.
For the Lemon-Limoncello Truffles - Add grated zest of lemon and 3 tbsp of limoncello to the ganache.Chill it preferably overnight and next day using a melon scooper scoop out the truffles. Roll them in Cocoa or Icing sugar.
