100 gr white flour
200 gr honey

50 gr chocolate
300 gr raisin
200 gr almonds

Ready in: about 70 minutes


How to prepare the recipe: "Chocolate truffles with dried fruit":
Soak the raisin in a bowl for about 10 minutes, then drain and wring well. In another bowl with warm water, wet the hazelnuts and almonds, then dry them with a cloth, rubbing well in order to eliminate the skin. Finally coarsely chop the raisin, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and pinenuts.

Melt the honey, warming it a bagnomaria (bain-marie) or in a pot at very low heat. Put the chopped dry fruit and raisin in a big bowl, add the cocoa, flour, grated chocolate and the hot honey. Mix with a wooden spoon until you get a dense mixture.

Take the dough a little by little and with your hands form many little balls; put them on a plaque and bake in the oven at 200 °C for about 30 minutes.

Preparation time: 40 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Difficulty: easy

Chef's advice
If you want give more flavour to the raisin, instead of water soak it in a Passito wine or another liqueur of your choice.
I suggest to serve this sweet with Rum Anejo.
