These tasty truffles make a memorable gift

Biscoff Truffles

MADISON COUNTY — These delicious no-bake bites make a lovely hostess gift all year long. Using just four ingredients that can be stored in a pantry, they can also be made quickly for entertaining in a pinch. The truffles are handmade with Biscoff Cookies and Biscoff Spread, a creamy spread made from the cookies, lending an irresistible caramelized flavor to them.

Biscoff Truffles

1⁄2 cup semisweet or bitter—sweet chocolate chips

1⁄2 cup Biscoff Spread

20 Biscoff Cookies

1⁄2    cup powdered sugar

Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high about one minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in spread until well combined; let stand.

Finely crush cookies in a food processor or in a heavy plastic bag with a rolling pin. Set aside two tablespoons of the crushed cookies; stir remaining amount into chocolate mixture, mixing well. Chill in refrigerator 10 minutes, stirring once after five minutes. (Do not chill longer, as mixture will become stiff.)

Spoon heaping teaspoons of the mixture into mounds onto a waxed paper–lined tray. (If mixture is too wet, stir in 1 tablespoon cookie crumbs at a time.) Let stand at room temperature 20 minutes to “air dry.” Place powdered sugar in a small bowl. Pick up each teaspoon of the mixture and form into a ball. Place in bowl of sugar; use two forks to toss until well coated. Place in individual candy cups or on a serving plate. Store at room temperature. Makes about 2 dozen truffles.

  • GinaNoemugpic.jpg Growing and cooking with herbs

    We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

  • Shop your refrigerator, part two: Casseroles

    Last article, we wrote about making soup out of leftover ingredients you have around the house. With this winter giving us one more round of snow early in the month, a hot bowl of soup turned out to be a good way to stay warm while staying home.

  • Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky

    It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.

  • Beat the winter blues with meatballs

    When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
    I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.

    After the kids come in from building snow forts and making snow angels, I like to have big cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. But if you really want to indulge after playing in the snow, try these melt-in-your-mouth cookies.

  • GinaNoemugpic.jpg Keeping food safe during emergencies

    Today’s article is one I have submitted before, but the information in it is worth reading again.
    The food in refrigerators and freezers represents a significant investment. Winter storms can cause power outages that may last from a few hours to several days before electricity can be restored.
