::SMS:: Hazelnut... er.... CASHEW Truffles
I met Annie, of Living Life Foodcariously, a few years ago when we were planning our weddings. First, it was just chit-chatting online about our upcoming nuptials. Then, it was meeting for dinner & drinks with other brides-to-be in NYC. Now it's baking & blogging together. Annie chose a super easy recipe for Sweet Melissa Sunday --- HAZELNUT TRUFFLES.
Easy to make, that is. I usually have a lot of ingredients on hand. Unfortunately, hazelnuts were not one of them. AMAZING?!?!? I went to 5 SUPERmarkets! NOTHING! I was blown away! Even the Diamond brand -- Out. Of. Stock! I went back to my pantry to see what I had: almonds, peanuts & cashews. I never had truffles with cashews before UNTIL NOW! These were great!
This super-easy-simple recipe can be found on Annie's blog. Some of the other SMS Bakers had some trouble finding hazelnuts and went with other nuts, as well as other variations. Be sure to check out what they did!
