Tartufi al Cioccolato–Chocolate Truffles and Dove Chocolate Discoveries Winner!

tartufo-al-cioccolato-chocolate-truffle-2
I promised all of you another Dove Chocolate Discoveries recipe. This one was my favorite to make. It is TO DIE FOR delicious and I am dreaming about them all over again!
But before we get to these amazing tartufi, let’s announce the winner!

The winner is Lizzy from That Skinny Chick can Bake! Congratulations, Lizzy!! Thank you to all of you for participating in this fabulous giveaway from Dove Chocolate Discoveries! Now you can’t miss this next recipe!!

I’m very excited to share this Italian recipe with you. My handsome husband baked with me. He was really impressed with Dove Chocolate Discoveries baking line and had quite a few ideas he wanted to try. Thank goodness we still have some more chocolate left to bake with!

You could use any plain, dry cookies you’d like if you can’t find biscotti. The biscotti texture works wonderfully as the filling for the these little bundles of chocolate joy.

If you aren’t crazy about almonds, you could roll the cookie balls in chopped up pistachios or roll them in cocoa powder. I really liked them rolled in the Dove Chocolate Discoveries milk chocolate cinnamon dusted almonds. I couldn’t resist eating quite a few of the tartufi before we got to the rolling part. When you try this recipe, you’ll see what I mean! 

Tartufi al Cioccolato-Chocolate Truffles
Ingredients
1 lb of biscotti
1 2 ounce bar of Dove Chocolate Discoveries milk chocolate, melted (or your favorite baking chocolate)
3 tablespoons of rum
1 (8 ounce) package of the cinnamon dusted chocolate almonds
4 (2 ounce) bars of Dove Chocolate Discoveries dark chocolate, melted

Directions:
Grind the cinnamon dusted chocolate almonds and place in a small bowl.

Roll the cookie batter into 1-inch balls. There was a slight problem at this part of recipe. I ended up eating quite a few of these adorable tartufi!

Dip each cookie ball into the dark chocolate. This part was also where we lost a few of the tartufi. Oh my gosh, delicious!

Store in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Before serving, let the tartufi come to room temperature. 
Buon appetito!

Hope you are having a sweet week !

  3. Miss Lora this tartufi is so delicious lookin' You and you chef hubs are the most adorable. I was thinking yesterday as I was asking on the cell Jonathan to get a head start on dinner while I was stuck in traffic, how stressed he was,poor J. You on the other hand got a private chef at home. J did well though considering.:)

  4. Yeah! Congratulations to Lizzy (she has a great blog too)
    I see what you mean when it came to the rolled tartufi balls, they look so moist and chewy. Not to mention irresistible. Then we scroll down and see the chocolate dip and the chopped nuts...oh my goodness! What a truly decadent truffle and I think I'm bookmarking these for Christmas treats (not sure I can hold out that long though)
