It pains me to say this, but the fact that we made these 5 days ago and there are still some in the fridge doesn’t bode well for how this recipe fared in our home.
Recipe from Domestic Rebel: http://thedomesticrebel.com/2013/05/06/chunky-monkey-truffles-ben-jerrys-week/
After a prior issue with Candiquik they very nicely offered to send me some free to try again, so I searched for some truffle recipes to try. This sounded great, but I think maybe the inside was just not interesting enough?
Essentially, it’s banana pudding mix plus butter, plus powdered sugar. Roll into balls, freeze, dip in chocolate, top with a nut.
Ingredients in full:
- 1 pkg. banana instant pudding mix
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- ¼ cup water
- 1 & ⅓ cup powdered sugar
- ½ pkg chocolate almond bark or Candiquik
- About 15 halved walnut pieces
More specific instructions at source. I will say that the mixture was WAY too soft to make into balls so I had to refrigerate for a while first. THen made these:
Then I melted the Candiquik, with MUCH better results than prior attempts, and poured into a bowl so it was deeper for dipping.
Had better luck dipping than my prior truffles at least, and hubby to help with putting the nuts on top for each one. They came out well, I think, but just missing something and wasn’t too excited about end result.
Next attempt will be Pumpkin Truffles with the white Candiquik!!!
