Chocolate Truffles

Well... I do not remember ever being as pleased with my food-head as I am now!!!

I was remembering of a truffle my mum used to make with powdered baby milk and even before I could think anymore, I was in the kitchen.
In less than 2 minutes I had truffles...
And so will you...

They will need to be eaten pretty quickly as they harden with time...If you are like me, you will eat them on the spot ...but if you are going to eat later, add more water and wait 5 minutes before you roll them. After rolled, leave them on a sealed container and cover with the cocoa just before serving!!! You can even skip the cocoa, they are delicious even without it!!!
It is heavenly!

You will need:
4  tablespoons of  milk powder {I used skimmed}
1 tablespoon of 100% cocoa powder and a little more for dusting
2 or 3 tablespoons water, fromage frais or quark {start with 2 and add the rest slowly, if necessary, so you get a thick paste consistency}
Sweeten it to your taste {sugar, palm sugar, sweetener, you choose}

Pinches of ground cinnamon, chillies, sea salt, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg
You can also use a drop of essential oils like peppermint, bergamot, mandarin, etc...just make sure it is of excellent precedence and preferably organic...
Or you can use almond, vanilla, rum, lemon, strawberry or your favourite flavouring a couple of drops is enough.

Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Wet the palm of your hands a bit and roll a teaspoon at a time.
As I prefer to eat pretty food, I put them on a plate and dusted some cocoa powder on top...
It does not hurt to feel pampered...
