No, I'm not attending. No, I don't write cop stories. I'm simply donating two boxes of candy to be auctioned off for a good cause. My little donation is nothing compared to the big stuff they have.
|1 lb. assorted truffles|
|1 lb. sea salt caramel|
In no particular order, they are:
Peppermint Schnapps, Strawberry Margarita, Frangelico, Amaretto, Whiskey Toffee, Baranjager (honey liquour), Key Lime, Chambord, Buttershots (butterscotch), Rum Raisin, Grand Marnier, Black Forest (cherry), Limoncello, Porto, and Gingerbread.
The gingerbread flavor is my newest invention. I tweeted the idea the other day and had a positive response to it, so I made it today. I had hubs taste the filling when he came home from work. His response, "How did you get gingerbread in there?"
Schwing! Outta the park!
As you know, I do a lot by sight and taste and adjust accordingly.
Here's the 'recipe'.
Gingerbread Truffle Candy filling
Grated ginger root
In heavy medium saucepan, add one cup of vodka, @ 1/2 sugar and about 1 Tbls grated ginger root. Bring to boil and add dash of nutmeg and allspice, 2 Tbls of Molasses and @ 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Simmer until mixture reduces and becomes syrupy. Add 1/3 cup cream and stir. Add chopped white chocolate until thickens .
Taste constantly and adjust flavors. This time the concoction had a disgusting color, so I added a little Milk chocolate. It improved the color, but changed the taste. I added a little more molasses, fresh grated ginger and a dash of cinnamon.
You'll just have to trust me that these are really, really good!
