Naughty Chocolate Pistachio Truffles by claremanson Naughty Chocolate Pistachio Truffles by claremanson
These truffles are very naughty! Dark (semi sweet) chocolate truffles that are very rich and creamy and melt in the mouth. Covered in crushed pistachio nuts, i just love the opposites in texture and flavour, it's a fun party in the mouth.

Please forgive the photo quality, for some reason the crisp edges have been lost in the upload to DA :( It's so annoying as it came out perfectly on my facebook page! If anyone has any advice for uploading photos from GIMP would be greatly appreciated.

RECIPE


I also have a recipe for cookie truffles

Pistachio nuts are something I haven't really ventured into much, but I do enjoy the crunchiness of nuts with chocolate. These look go and I bet they taste just as good as they look. =)

There's no way that you won't bake anything for all that length of time--you can't help yourself! :XD: There will be more. :nod:

i know...my friend Bev who used to look after my mum is taking us all to Mataln on Monday for wedding stuff, so tempted to baker her something but things like that are different. Making things as gifts for other not just as fun for the kids and carl to eat.
