The Partiologist: Television & Truffles!

Television & Truffles!

I have to share with you the big event of the day - some of my friends that I met at cookie camp are going to be on the Martha Stewart show today!  This weeks shows on Martha are all about cookies and the women featured are friends of mine.  So I think that I am famous, just by knowing them!  Here's the line up:

This is sooo exciting, so please watch along with me on the Hallmark Channel!
Here's a Preview!
At the bottom of the preview is a photo of cookies that read:

I just watched the show and they featured a photo of our group at camp!
Just in case you're wondering, I'm third from the right!!  Hair in pony tail blowing in the wind!

Now, on to a wonderful recipe from Martha~

  • 8 ounces best-quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Assorted coatings, such as crushed peppermint candies, toasted sweetened shredded coconut, finely chopped pistachios or other nuts, and cocoa powder


  1. Place chocolate in a medium bowl. Bring cream to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; pour over chocolate. Let sit 2 to 3 minutes, then whisk until smooth. Refrigerate (uncovered) until somewhat firm, about 1 hour.
  2. Spoon mounds (2 level teaspoons each) of chocolate mixture onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Return to refrigerator 15 minutes.
  3. With your hands, roll mounds into balls. Place desired coatings in shallow bowls; roll balls in coatings, pressing in and covering completely. Return to baking sheet; chill until set, about 30 minutes.

Caution:  Try not to eat to many while making - studies have shown it causes weight gain in laboratory rats!  :)
