I love dark chocolate now, probably because my cravings for milk chocolate has died down. I can’t explain why, but milk chocolate is a little too sweet for me now. When I was growing up, this was the total opposite.
Speaking of growing up, I just finished finals week for fall semester. Super duper happy. You know what that means? Besides going on break for a month, I get to go home, as in sunny San Diego. No more fog for a couple of weeks. I just can’t wait.
I always look forward to going home. One of my favorite moments about Christmas is the annual get together with my high school friends. This year will be our 7th Annual Christmas Party. Yes, 7th! Man, are we getting older. I can’t wait to catch up with my friends. I must confess that I am super sad I don’t get to see them as often as I would like. But, I will take advantage of spending more time with my high school friends, this time of year when everyone is home.
As most parties I go to, this one is a potluck. We have assigned categories because who wants to eat only chips and no main entree. I don’t for sure. As usual, I ended up with desserts. I did not want to make anything complicated like I originally planned, since I just finished finals and I have to factor in the transportation aspect. It would be simpler if I was driving down, but I am flying down instead.
Something super delicious that travels well and who does not love (unless you dislike chocolate *gasp!*). Truffles. Chocolate Truffles. More specifically dark chocolate truffles. My worst enemy. If you place a bowl of chocolate truffles in front of me, I can just eat them all. Don’t even try asking me to save you any. There will not be any left.
Chocolate truffles are just amazing. Few ingredients, but indulgent enough. Once placed in your mouth, the smoothness of the chocolate, just melts on your tongue that you have to close your eyes and savor the taste. Awwww man… I really want a truffle now.
Please don’t mind me as I steal a truffle in between photos.
