My Christmas Chocolate Delights – Three Chocolate Dominoes and Truffles



Today on this last post before Christmas I wanted to share two of my chocolate recipes.  My three chocolate dominoes and my truffles.

These deserts are pretty easy to make and just delicious. And they do not require baking.

If you are a chocolate lover you will love the truffle with pure semi-sweet chocolate and no sugar added.  If you have more of a sweet tooth you will love my three chocolate dominos which are sweeter, while not too sweet.

Three Chocolate Dominoes

Ingredients

  • 100 gr of dark chocolate
  • 75 gr of butter
  • 50 gr of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 50 gr of plain butter cookies
  • 50 gr of walnuts
  • 50 of almonds
  • 50 of coconut shreds
  • 1 tea spoon of vanilla extract
  • 100 gr milk chocolat
  • 100 gr of white cholat
  • Two table spoons of cream

On medium to low heat in a medium size cooking pot, pour the dark chocolate, the butter and the sugar together and let melt slowly.

Once the chocolate is very soft stir with a whisk, add one beaten egg and stir very vividly for about a minute until the mixture is cooked and will star to thicken.  Then remove from the heat.

Then, add one tea spoon of vanilla extract, the ground cookies, ground nuts and shred coconut and stir well all the ingredients together.

Take a square of rectangular mold, spread with butter, and pour the mixture into the mold. Flatten evenly with a spatula and let sit in the fridge for 45 minutes to an hour.

Then, melt the white chocolate with a table spoon of heavy cream in bain marie until melted. When melted stir firmly until you obtain a smooth cream.

Take your mold out of the fridge and add the white layer.

Then put in the fridge for another 30-45 minutes.

Finally melt your milk chocolate chips with on table spoon of heavy cream in bain marie, and mix until smooth.  Take your mold out of the fridge and spread the last layer.

Put your mold back in the fridge for at least one  hour.

Remove from the fridge and start cutting out the dominos while wiping your knife after each cut stroke with a piece of paper towel.

Store in the fridge, but take the dominos out of the fridge 45 minutes to an hour before eating. You can store your dominos in the fridge up to 3 to 4 days.

Truffles

Ingredients

  • 230 gr of semi-sweet chocolate
  • Half a cup of heavy cream
  • 2 table spoon of butter (soft)
  • 1 table spoon of rhum
  • few pieces of walnuts (optional)
  • 2 table spoon of coco power (none sweet)

Pour the cream and butter in a medium size pot and leave until the cream start boiling.  Pour chocolate in heat resistant bowl and met slowing in bain marie.

Then, when chocolate is partly melted, pour the cream over it and stir vividly until the mixture is smooth.

Cover the blow with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours or overnight.

Then, when the paste is firm, shape your truffles. Place a piece of nut in the center and shape your ball (it doesn’t need to be a perfect round ball.

Then, roll your truffle in coco powder.

Store your truffle in the the fridge.  It can be stored in the fridge up to 4 to 5 days.

    Wow, Sylviane, those look amazing. The chocolate one looks pretty easy too, considering it’s mostly melting and waiting. I thought that one would be hard. As for truffles, I love those. I have a recipe that my cousin gave me that you’re supposed to roll up into a ball then cover with chocolate sprinkles and they are delicious but rolling them up is llways a challenge. I seem to end up with more on my hands then on the plate 🙂 But I’ll do anything for chocolate! I love it, and these look sooooo good. I bet the dominoes are also great to bring to a party because they look so pretty. As usual, thank for sharing your recipes. You’ve got some great tricks up your sleeve 🙂

      LOL, I think I misspelled dominoes didn’t I? Shame on me 🙂 I guess I assumed it spelled the same as in French.

      Yes, you got it. It’s more of melting and waiting than anything else. So easy… anyone can do it.

      In order for the truffles not to stick to your hand when you make them, just make sure that the mixed is hard enough, and it shouldn’t be a problem at all.

      Hope you’ll try them.

      Happy Holidays to you!

    Thank you for these recipes.

      Hi Adrienne,

      I’m glad you enjoyed this one. I didn’t mention this in the post, but one can replace any ingredient by another. If you don’t like walnut you could just take that out or replace it be another nut or put more of what you like.

      Happy Holidays to you Adrienne!

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Yes, please, Barbara, let me know it it turns out if you try these.

      Again, there’s no baking. Just melting and waiting basically, so it so easy. Well, there’s a little of string and mixing too, but that’s about it 🙂

  • Carol Minarcik says:

    Hello Sylviane, I love chocolate….so this was a delicious post for me to read this morning and made me sooooooo hungry for SWEET. I love your recipes and the way you display them. Not sure how to measure the amt. of chocolate tho, have not seen that measurement used…but I will figure it out.

    Thanks

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Carol,

      Not being from America, originally 🙂 I do not measure in ounces which for me is SO confusing. However, even, here in America more and more cooks do measure in grams, and you can find a cooking scale anywhere. There are quite cheap too!

      Thanks for coming and hope you’ll try these 🙂

      I wish you a very Happy New year!

    I thought I could not make this thing, but would love to taste it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone.

    • Sylviane Nuccio says:

      Hi Erwin,

      Well, it’s pretty easy to make, and I think you’ll know for sure if you can make it or not if you try.

      Thanks for coming and Happy New year to you!
