My chocolate class :)

I am SO thrilled I took this amazing chocolate class with Lee Ann Mitchell (http://www.chocolatebydesign.ca/) and look what I’ve come up with by the end of the class 😉
Unfortunately I cannot give you Lee Ann’s delicious recipe for these truffles and ganaches (you would have to contact her for that) but for a close version please look into my truffles recipe under the Recipes tab. You can then roll your truffles with any toppings you like 🙂

Almond butter

Imagine making your own nut butter at home! I was thrilled when I learned that and mainly when I found out how easy and quick this was 🙂
You could use peanuts, cashews and any other nuts of your choice.

For a full jar (like the one on the picture) you will need around 500g (16oz) of raw almonds.
Preheat your oven to 350F. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and bake for 15min (make sure your oven was fully preheated prior to roasting the almonds).
Let cool slightly and mix with a food processor for a total of 15min-20 min. This will give time for the nuts to release their oil adding some elastic texture to your butter. Stop the food processor several times during the process and scrap the bowl with a spoon to make sure all the nuts get well blended.
