We spent Saturday night with friends and during the visit our friend Myke asked me to start posting more recipes.
So I told him, like a good friend would, fat chance. Although I have a Vegan Kitchen tag I rarely post recipes for a couple reasons.
For all these reasons you should all be eternally grateful for today's rockin' recipe, Chocolate Truffles. I made these yesterday afternoon for a special Sunday dessert. It was a treat for my family (I rarely make dessert) but especially for my husband who has incredible self discipline and doesn't eat sugar and all kinds of other bad stuff. These were for you baby, glad you loved them!
And to my friend Myke: technically these are meat free but these probably weren't what you had in mind when you requested more recipes. Check out Fatfree Vegan Kitchen for a lot of incredibly tasty and beautifully photography vegetable based recipes.
I added a couple used-up vanilla beans from my homemade vanilla extract. Because they had been sitting in vodka for months most of the flavor was gone but they added a nice subtle flavor. I didn't use rum, none in the house, but afterwards thought this would be a nice touch, especially for a holiday dessert.
