At this very moment my house has dog hair tumbleweeds floating across the floor, boxes of closet junk stacked on my dining room table, and a mouse trap sitting on my kitchen counter. You can only imagine why I had to put one there. Add to all of this the fact that it now gets dark before I can even turn a burner on to start dinner, and I haven’t really felt like being in the kitchen much lately.
Thankfully, there is a bright side. Two weekends ago, pre the mouse invasion and subsequent closet emptying, I hosted a girl’s night at our house. Every girl should have a girl’s night. Really. It’s a great excuse to eat fancy cheese, exchange fun gifts, and drink lots of wine (without any boys around to laugh at you if you can’t unscrew the cork correctly…which didn’t happen to us. Nope, definitely not).
And my favorite part of girl’s night? Making and consuming an absurd amount of chocolate truffles.
Let’s face it, truffles are a lady’s dessert. They’re cute, mini sized, decadent chocolate balls. Not much else a girl could ask for. These Double Chocolate Truffles are filled with dense dark chocolate, dipped in another layer of chocolate, than sprinkled with just enough sea salt to add a little surprise to every bite. To die for. And even better, these are only the first of three different kinds of truffles we consumed that night. Excited yet? Me too.
