It's my grandmothers 80th bday on monday, and as usual she didn't want any gifts. I never go to a birthday without one, so I decided to make a little something myself anyway. I decided to make chocolate bonbons, something I'd never done before.
I made chocolate truffels and moccabonbons, at least that's what they are called in my recipebook.
The truffels are made with 72% Swiss chocolate and covered with 'hagelslag' or chopped up walnuts. These were rolled into little balls. The mocca ones are made with 72% Swiss chocolate and milkchocolate, and coffee. These were squirted on a plate and sprinkled with chopped up walnuts.
Ofcourse I didn't have any papercups to squirt them in, so I had to cut them off the plate after they came out the fridge. Doesnt really matter though, they still taste good :)
Closeup shot, yeah I know they arent the prettiest ever, but I was in a hurry and the stuff clung to my hands a lot. Still, I think it's a pretty good first try.
