Chocolate Treats A La Magali

You might remember that vegetable covered dish that was surprisingly on my dessert buffet the last time I show you my dining-room.

I had promised to give you the recipe for the chocolate treats I had hidden there.

Je vous avez promis la recette de mes petites gourmandises au chocolat. Chose promise, chose due.

Here's what you need:
  • 3 tablespoons of raisins
  • 1 tablespoon of rum
  • about 10 petit-beurres (butter cookies)
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons of grounded nuts (any kind could do)
  • 2 tablespoons of cream
  • 120 g of dark chocolate, melted in a hot water bath
  • 3 tablespoon of sugar syrup
  • more grounded nuts

 Voici ce dont vous avez besoin:
  • 3 cuil. à soupe de raisins secs
  • 1 cuil. à soupe de rhum
  • environ 10 petits beurres (j'utilise en fait des petits bruns, mon péché mignon)
  • 3 cuil. à soupe de sucre brun
  • 1/2 cuil. à café de cannelle
  • 3 cuil. à soupe de noix hachées
  • 2 cuil. à soupe de crème fraîche
  • 120 g de chocolat fondu au bain marie
  • 3 cuil. à soupe de sirop de sucre
  • noix hachées en plus

What you need to do:
  • Put the raisin and the rum in a bowl, put in the freezer and wait for the next day!
  • Grind the raisins and the cookies together.
  • Add the sugar, the cinnamon, the nuts,  the cream and mix.
  • Melt the chocolate in a hot-water bath (I guess you could use a micro-wave, but I don't).
  • Add the chocolate and the sugar syrup to the other ingredients. Mix well and you're nearly done.
  • Depending on the weather that day, you may need to put it in the refrigerator for a little while or not.
  • Roll small balls of the chocolate mixture and then roll them in the additional grounded nuts.

Ce que vous devez faire:
  •  Mettez les raisins et le rhum dans un bol et attendez le lendemain.
  • Hachez les raisins et les biscuits ensemble.
  • Ajoutez le sucre, la cannelle, les noix, la crème et mélangez.
  • Faites fondre le chocolat au bain marie (je suppose qu'on peut utiliser un micro-onde, mais je ne le fais pas).
  • Ajoutez le chocolat et le sirop de sucre aux autres ingrédients, mélangez bien et vous avez presque fini.
  • Suivant la chaleur qu'il fait ce jour-là, vous aurez peut-être besoin de mettre la préparation au frigo quelques minutes.
  • Formez de petites boules et roulez-les dans les noix hachées supplémentaires.

The hardest part of this recipe?
Trying not to eat the treats as fast as you make them!

La partie la plus délicate de cette recette? 
Essayez de ne pas manger les friandises plus vite que vous ne les faites!

  1. Wow, those sound and look delicious! Thank you for the recipe.

  2. Going to make those as petit fours for my husband's birthday lunch. Think I will use ground Almonds, as he loves the taste.

  3. J'ai eu l'immense chance de les goûter ! Un régal ! Les rochers X ou Y à côté, c'est de la crotte de chat ! J'ai commandé les mêmes pour mon petit Noël, j'espère que mon souhait sera exaucé !

  4. LOL...Well ! there goes that! I would for sure eat them as fast as I can make them...LOL.
