dark choclate truffles with raspberry compote
Friday a little after midnight, Levi got up with a fever. He was up all night and didn't fall asleep until 4 am. Then he got up at 6 am like nothing ever happened, happy as can be. He didn't have a fever so we sent him to daycare and I dragged myself to work. Levi's fist haircut was scheduled for later that day. I picked him up and went to his haircut. He did very well. He whined a little, but overall I would say it was a success. He looks like a little man now. Then we went to my MIL's for Passover dinner (so weird to say that, Mother In Law) hee hee. During the Sader and dinner, Levi was not in great shape so we rushed home before dessert.
I was home with Levi all day Saturday, but I started feeling under the weather. Thank goodness he napped for 4 hours. He must have not been feeling well either. Then we had to go back to my MIL's house for round II of Passover dinner. Levi was in good form but I was in sorry shape. I barely made it through dinner and rushed home.
Sunday, I was bed ridden all day. I found a few hours in the afternoon when I felt well enough to make these Dark Chocolate Truffles with Raspberry Compote (recipe here). FYI, I only had half of one. They are rich and decadent.
|Chop up 8 oz of bittersweet chocolate and let it melt in 1/2 cup of warm heavy cream.|
Process 1 package of chocolate wafers and fill cupcake liners.
Next time I will only fill them halfway.
|This is what it looks like when the chocolate has melted. |
After chocolate mixture has cooled for an hour, place a dollop on top of the chocolate wafers and smooth top with a spoon. Refrigerate for another hour.
|Heat 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and raspberries in a sauce pan for 10-15 minutes and let them cool.|
