Thumbprint Chocolate Truffles,a last minute gift

Still searching for some foodie Christmas presents? Forgotten to buy someone  a present? Someone turns up unexpectedly with a present and you feel you need to reciprocate? Perhaps you just fancy having some home made munchies to indulge in front of that classic Hollywood movie matinee.The answer is simple,make your own.
It’s perhaps unlikely that I or any other dear food-loving individual would waste any chocolate cake but it does happen.Many of us bake cakes and many of us end up with some cake cut offs. A good number of people tend to throw the cut offs away for a simple reason,they don’t know what to do with it! However, there is no need for that!
One way to use leftover chocolate cake is to make truffles and you can play with the rest of the ingredients to have some fun.I topped mine with candied fruits and assorted coloured sprinkles.What a gay day I had.Happy Christmas everyone!!!!!
Thumbprint Chocolate Truffles
    200g dark chocolate
    250g chocolate cake, crumbled
    150g heavy cream
    Assorted candied fruits

    Chop chocolate roughly into pieces and melt them in a bain marie.
    Heat heavy cream in a small saucepan until it boils.
    Mix heavy cream in with the melted chocolate.
    Pour it on crumbled cake.
    Mix them until combined well.
    Let it chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
    Then take pieces from it with the help of a small spoon.
    Make balls from these pieces.
    Place pieces of candied peel on each of them and press them gently with your thumb.


      1. This recipe brought to mind a very interesting chocolate I'd tasted in Madrid: bread and olive oil covered in dark chocolate.
