Orange Cardamom Truffles
Shinee is a featured food blogger on Dan330.com. This is her Orange Cardamom Truffles recipe.
Couple months back, I decided to incorporate more and more spices in my baking, beyond the usual cinnamon, clove, nutmeg stuff, you know.
I started with whole nutmeg (remember my pumpkin streusel bars, or this apple cranberry crisp, or better yet, maple pumpkin cheesecake? They all have freshly grated nutmeg in them!) From the very first try, I was sold. Hands down, freshly grated nutmeg is so much more aromatic than the ground stuff.
Anyway, next I added cardamom to my baking repertoire and I’m not even exaggerating when I say I’ve been obsessed. It’s slightly citrusy, slightly minty, slightly floral. It’s pungent and a lil bit goes a long way! It pairs well with oranges, apples and pears, as well coffee and chocolate. It’s great in both sweet and savory recipes. Overall, it’s an amazing spice!!
Bursting with unusual, yet delicate flavors, these dark chocolate orange cardamom truffles are smooth-as-silk and simply irresistible. Best of all, it takes minutes to make!!
