Happy Easter Everyone!!! On the occasion of Easter i got an opportunity to meet few of my old time friends, with whom i had spent my life’s best years. My best friend traveled all the way from Ratlam to visit us… nothing can be more blissful than spending a moment with old friends and re-living the good times spent. And what better way to celebrate the occasion than having a luscious, ganache glazed truffle cake with filling of chocolate , nuts and cherries….complete bliss!
A chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate, icing sugar, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts (typically hazelnuts, almonds or coconut), usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape. Other fillings may replace the ganache: cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, berries, or other assorted sweet fruits, nougat, fudge, or toffee, mint, chocolate chips, marshmallow, and, popularly, liqueur.
I tried making it with a middle layer filling of ganache, chocolate, cherries and almonds. The almonds can be replaced by other nuts like hazelnuts, apricots etc.
