Hmmmm... if I continue this trend, my next entry will be "Merry Christmas!" I haven't been in the mood for blogging, but I had a lot of fun tonight pretending like I was a chocolate maker. These are the truffles I'm going to take to Thanksgiving at my uncle's house tomorrow. I used the very straightforward and easy method here. For coatings I chose walnut, plain powdered sugar, coconut, and cinnamon. It was fun improvising the box to transport and serve them in, too... it is a previously owned and used Sacher-Torte box from Vienna, lined with wax paper and modified with hand cut cardboard dividers, also covered in wax paper. I also made a chocolate pie for my grandpa, and an appetizer of dried dates stuffed with pistachios and then wrapped in apricots and bacon. Tomorrow is going to be fun! Then I will buckle down and finish getting ready for the Charlottesville Waldorf School Holiday Bazaar, where I'll be a vendor on December 6th & 7th. Last year it was really good, so I'm happily anticipating this year's!
