From as early as I can remember, holidays were a special time in the kitchen at our house, and at the houses of both my grandmothers. It almost seemed that starting from the week before Thanksgiving (sometimes even earlier), until well after the New Year has rung in, the kitchens were all abuzz with activity.
I was just small child when I can remember helping my mom with the Christmas cookie and candy making. It made me feel so special the first time you let me get up on the stool to help her when she made the divinity. She careful poured this boiling hot sugary, syrupy mixture over the egg whites that she had allowed me to beat stiff with her old stand mixer. I had become a part of the holiday candy making tradition from that moment on.
I will admit, I do love divinity, and fudge, and most any other candy (even some that come in wrapper at the store, even if they are not as good as what comes out of a kitchen stocked with love). However, the first time I ever bit into a truffle, it was definitely love at first bite! The problem was, when you love something that much, you don’t want to pay a fortune for a tiny box of them when you know you can make them yourself. So I began to research, and experiment, and then research some more when my experiments came out like something from a B horror flick. I took a little info here, and some there, and finally I came up with a recipe I think can match even the priciest truffles you can find to buy. This recipe may look long, or you may even think it is harder than what it is worth, but try it just once and you will realize that despite the lines of text you see below, making truffles is an incredibly easy task that can more than pay for itself with the very first batch!
