So Will’s mom is packing. And it’s a small apartment, and I need something to do. And I’m craving chocolate.
Chris’ Impromtu Chocolate Fudge Truffle Thing
(Sally and Marleen calls them “Mini Mt. Rainiers”)
5 oz baking chocolate squares (I used the Baker’s cheap o semi-sweet stuff. I know, manufactured on the same equipment as a million allergens… I’m actually not that picky.)
2 tbsp organic chunky peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chopped craisins
Powdered sugar for dusting
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. As it’s starting to melt, add peanut butter and stir. Stir till smooth, add vanilla and take off heat. Add craisins. Stir.
Drop by spoonful onto a sheet of wax paper.
Put into freezer for about ten minutes.
Dust with powdered sugar.
Serve to surprised guests. :D
Sidenote: This is chocolate that came with us from Buffalo, and survived the Great Cross Country Peppermint Extract Spill of 2010. Therefore… these had a very very mild minty flavor to them. I’d actually recommend adding maybe a quarter teaspoon mint extract because it added something quite tasty to the rest of it.
