Tartufi al cioccolato e mandorle

Ingredients for 4 servings:

150 gr extra dark chocolate
80 gr almonds
3 tbsp of Rum

Ready in: about 20 minutes


How to prepare the recipe: "Chocolate and almonds truffles":
Chop the sponge cake in a bowl and wet with Rum. Mix with your fingers and form many little balls. Melt the chocolate “a bagnomaria” (bain-marie) mixing often and brush the balls with the melted chocolate. Cut the almonds into strips and toast them in a skillet at low heat until they color.

Roll the tartufi into the almonds strips and let them cool on a dish at room temperature.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

Chef's advice
Instead of sponge cake you could use panettone or other spongy sweets. You can also enrich the tartufi adding to the dough candied orange zests, perfuming with orange or almonds essential oils.
I suggest to serve this sweeties with a white grappa or a liqueur wine.
