Candy Cane Truffle Recipe.

Ingredients: 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons of whipping cream
8 Ounces semisweet baking chocolate finely chopped ( I "chopped" it with the blender)
Half a cup or more of crushed up candy cane.

Directions: In a small sauce pan boil whipping cream ( I added some grated orange peal for flavour)
Bring to a boil, then remove from heat for 15 minutes, during this 15 minutes take some time to prepare a baking sheet with wax paper. You should also have your chocolate finely chopped the smaller the better so after ALOT of wasted time trying to chop the chocolate I eventually just threw it all in the blender, if you do that its a good idea to put the chocolate in the fridge for a few minutes before hand as the blender heats up and melts the chocolate!
Put the sauce pan of cream back on the burner and bring to a boil. Once boiling poor over the chocolate( which should be in a heat- proof bowl) stir until smooth. Pour chocolate onto un UNLINED baking sheet and put into the freezer for about 15 minutes.
Using a table spoon, scrape the chocolate to form balls roughly about 1 inch. Roll in the candy cane dust (which I also used a blender for) and then place on the wax paper prepared cookie sheet, and there you have it! Simple!
Stay tuned, in the next few days I'll show ya how to make these little numbers, Double chocolate Candy Cane cookies!

Rest in peace, Joesph

Its going to be so very hard to move on with out you. You had a brilliant mind and were a very talented artist. Your art was very unique and had a certain flair. I remember when I first met you at work, I had made a mistake on the till and no one was around to help, I was getting all flustered and you just kind of showed up, you were so very helpful, but then laughed at me because I made the exact same mistake with the very next costumer! I will always remember how it took 4 hours to set up my iphone, because you had never set one up before, but it didn't matter because there were no other costumers, so we just chatted and consumed Tim Hortons while you tried to figure it out.
I will miss you txting me early in the morning before work,before I was even awake! It seemed like you never went to sleep!
I will miss our nightly conversations about, the bible, mystical creatures, and just life in general, even tho we didn't agree on things sometimes it was still a pleasant argument.
You will be greatly missed by so many.
Rest in peace friend, I miss you.
