"Death by Chocolate".....I never quite understood this expression? The phrase always sounded funny to me....almost dangerous really...what could possibly go wrong with chocolate?
Is there a such thing as too much of a decadent, velvet smooth deep cocoa flavored treat. Eating a "can't put the spoon down" chocolate dessert? These all sound pretty good to me!
Maybe "Life by Chocolate", better suits this euphoric feeling of a life experience with Italian Chocolate Tartufo!
On a trip to Italy, I tried Tartufo for the first time and I was transported! Melt in your mouth ice cream like little balls of heaven. I created a version of this for a dinner party I had a couple weeks ago. The consistency is semi frozen. I formed the mixture into a mold I bought on Amazon, here is the link for Heart Molds. These are also available at Michael's. However, traditionally, these are served in little balls, formed in the palm of your hand.
This dessert is the perfect celebration dessert, when you want to share a treat with good friends or your loved ones.....Valentines Day!
