Vampire Truffles Chronicles IV: Nicolas Truffles

Nicolas, The lover, The mad Violinist, The dark soul. Nicolas Plays vital importance on the book. I mean, it was the first love of our Protagonist Lestat, It make a HUGE impact on Lestat life so Nicolas need his own Truffle. For this Truffle i choose Milk chocolate. It can be real overwhelming if you dont know how to combine it, My friend and co-worker Rux thinks that Milk chocolate is the cheapest of the chocolates, she is a Black Chocolate lover just like me.. Darker, Richer, Better.

I made a Simple Truffle, something classic, versatile and not so invasive that you can eats one by one on your soirees. It's a Milk chocolate and Cinnamon Truffle. I think that Cinnamon goes so well with the Milk chocolate dont you think? it like Nicolas and Lestat, Soft, creamy, divine. Somethimes, in my head i can picture them playing Mozart Sonatas, Lestat in his clavichord and Nicolas on his violin together, apart.

Milk Chocolate And Cinnamon Truffles


  • 9 ounces Milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup cream
  • 2 teaspoons grounded Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

Place the cream in a small saucepan and scald it until bubbles being to appear around the sides of the pan. Pour the cream over the chocolate and allow it to soften and melt the chocolate for one minute.

Using a whisk, gently stir to incorporate the cream and chocolate. Add the vanilla and the Cinnamon. Stir until well-combined.

Cover the truffle mixture with cling wrap and allow it to cool to room temperature. Once cool, refrigerate until it is firm enough to spoon, about 2 hours.

Using a teaspoon or cookie dough scoop, form small 1-inch balls from the ganache and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ganache. Return to the refrigerator to chill for another hour.

Place the cocoa powder in a small bowl or pie tin. Dust your hands with cocoa powder and place a truffle in the cocoa, rolling it until it is coated. Roll the truffle briefly between your palms to form a round shape. I made some rustic Truffles. Wanna have something like the real Fungus Truffles, place it back on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining truffles.

Hopes that you guys enjoy this symphony of Flavours. Simple yet Tastefull just like Nicolas Du Lenfent
