C. Looks appealing
D. Bite-sized
E. Loved by children and adults equally
F. And this one requires no heating element like the gas stove or the oven.

That's like a lot Iot of reasons to love truffles. I was invited for an Eid Preparation Collab and I was quite overwhelmed with ideas that popped in mind. Will share the recipes/ideas soon too.. So stay tuned for that! And I finally settled for these tiramisu truffles as I looked into my pantry and found these savoiardi biscuits (Italian lady finger biscuit) looking at me and waiting to be used up. Tiramisu is something everyone in the family lives but sadly there was no mascarpone cheese with and that is usually the star ingredient of tiramisu. So I wondered, not everyone will have it in their fridge and not everyone can find the mascarpone cheese. So I immediately thought of Kiri cream cheese cubes that we all love. Though I was not quite sure how it would turn out, I took a chance and tried using the cubes instead of mascarpone and oh boy you won't believe me, no one would even make out that there is jot mascarpone in it. Was a big hit! 😍

I felt the need for some chocolatey goodness, so I added a small dollop of Nutella before rolling them into truffles by flattening the prepared tiramisu Truffle balls, flattening, adding Nutella and rolling them again.

Though everyone here detests consuming cocoa powder just like that as I used it to coat the truffles, I still did coat them in cocoa powder to keep its authenticity. I went on to melt some milk chocolate in the microwave and drizzled it over the truffles. Not only it gave a dimension to the truffles, if was definitely appetizing too. So glad to think of it at the last moment.🤤
