3 Truffles Recipe 

This 2-ingredient chocolate truffle candy recipe is the epitome of fancy and yet, it’s one of the easiest to make! You don’t even need a stove to do this! You can make this using a microwave, a bowl, and a spoon.

What this does require are the best quality ingredients you can afford. With only two ingredients, you will taste it if the chocolate you use is not the kind of chocolate you would like to eat or feel in your mouth. We also say don’t scrimp on the cream either and use all-purpose cream, but instead, go ahead and splurge a little on the chilled heavy cream. You’ll notice the difference between truffles made with all-purpose cream and heavy cream, too. It’s a lighter, more delicate taste but still, with a fantastic creaminess that you will remember.

Not all dessert recipes are complicated and loaded with more ingredients than flavors. In the case of this kakanin, this biko recipe is just as stunning to look at as it is to taste. The ube is a vibrant color and flavor against the background of the neutral-tasting sticky rice. To amp up its appeal, top it off with crunchy latik or coconut milk solids that’s been cooked in its own coconut oil until toasted to perfection.
