Happy Valentines!

So its any roses, chocolates, teddies?!

I found out this amazing fact! : 12 hugs a day can earn you good emotional health. So get hugging!
How are you celebrating valentines? I've decided to cook up something sweet for valentines and chose these simple but lovely truffles~ sweet and brings a smile!

 Have a good valentines day..!

225g Organic Plain Chocolate, broken into chocolate button-sized pieces
175ml double or whipping cream
Icing sugar,cocoa powder or nuts for rolling
Icing sugar for dusting

Cover a large, heavy chopping board or a baking tray tightly and completely with clingfilm or waxed paper to place the truffles on to set.
Place the chocolate in a large mixing bowl at least 1.75 litres in capacity. In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a rolling boil and immediately pour over the broken chocolate. Blend thoroughly until all the chocolate is melted.
Allow the mixture, called a ganache, to cool, uncovered, completely for 1-1½ hours at room temperature until it is set. (You can speed up the process by placing the bowl in a sink filled with cold water - but don't allow any of the water to come into contact with the ganache.)
When the mixture has set, use a teaspoon to spoon out bite-sized pieces. Dust your hands lightly with icing sugar to prevent them sticking and roll the pieces into balls in the palms of your hands. Immediately roll the truffles in sifted cocoa powder, icing sugar or finely chopped nuts and place on the prepared tray to set.

with a dusting of icing sugar....

Welcome to "with a dusting of icing sugar"!
So its my first post of my first blog. yeap, I feel happy as I've finally completed one of my "to do" lists; but I'm not too sure how long this will stay up....
anyhow, thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!!!
BunBun is here! BunBun is a name inspired by my three pet rabbits..Maisy, Midnight and Charcoal. I have set up this blog so that I can share my many 'makings and bakings' with everyone..
In order to celebrate the opening of this blog, I have decided to try out a pandan chiffon cake. I love chiffon cakes~ they have lots of variations, aren't that hard to make once you get the basics, and best of all - they taste great!
