I hate truffles
I made far too many truffles yesterday. They're Christmas presents for people at work and some neighbours - it's cheaper than trying to find something for everyone that's different, people like chocolate and in some ways it's kind of fun to do something creative.
In other ways, I hate it and I hate truffles. By the time you've made more than 60, you are so tired of seeing them. The next 60 are just as infuriating, especially when the white chocolate for the mint ones decides to be temperamental. But at least they're all done and people are saying they're delicious.
The one I think would probably taste best would be the pistachio one. I made six different types - plain, rocky road, mint, pistachio, butterscotch and ginger. Will probably make the pistachio, plain and ginger ones again. The rest? Meeeehhhhh effort.
