SHF #25 - Peanut Truffle

Time for another round of the most tooth-aching blogging event out there - Sugar High Friday. Johanna from The Passionate Cook is hosting, and the theme - chocolate truffles. It was really hard deciding what to make this time, but eventually, lack of time forced a decision. I am a big fan of sweet-salty, and this truffle combines heavenly chocolate with salty peanuts: perfect.

I can't wait for the round-up - I really want to try lots of new recipes for the holidays, so I'm expecting a lot of new goodies from around the world!

Peanut Truffle

50 g butter
200 ml cream (35-40% fat)
200 g dark chocolate, chopped up
100 g milk chocolate, chopped up
100 g salted peanuts, chopped up

Melt the butter. Add the cream, and bring to a boil. Add the chocolate, and stir or use an immersion blender until you have a nice, silky mass. Add half the peanuts and pour into small foil cups or into a large, lined pans. Top with the rest of the peanuts. Leave to set in the fridge. (And indeed, leave them in the fridge - they will melt very easily.)

This sounds like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for serious foodies ;-) I'm with you on the sweet-savoury thing. There's no sweet that can't be improved by adding somethign salty ;-) Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.
