If I had to pick three things to take on a desert island with me I would choose my family, my 8×10 photo of Brad Pitt and a never-ending supply of chocolate. Naturally chocolate appeals to one’s sense of taste, but it also has a physical effect on a person. This is due to the fact that chocolate has about 500 natural chemical compounds in it. It has something called theobromine in it, which is a natural stimulant similar to caffeine. That’s why I never eat chocolate late at night. Phenylethylamine is also present in chocolate and that’s a mood elevator that releases endorphins in your brain making you feel happier. That’s precisely the effect that chocolate has on me.

Truffles are easy to make. They can be an elegant accompaniment to dessert at a dinner party, or they make a great gift too. But I just keep them in the fridge so they’re readily available for whenever I need my next chocolate fix.

  1. Chocolate does have a way of brightening up your day and mental outlook. I am so glad winter and the holidays are coming. These look elegant and delicious, I have never made truffles so I may need to give it a go-yum!.

  2. To heck with Willie Wonka – these are awesome! I adore truffles, but find them dangerous. I can’t stop eating them! However, if I made them rather than buy them, I can “possibly” control the number I make or not freeze. Now that I have a great set of instructions… it’s a possibility! Thanks!
