Godiva Chocolate Liquor Truffles

You all know by now that Charlie has a serious thing for chocolate – my homemade truffles being his favorite.  Although I’ve made my fare share of truffles, spiking them with a hint of liquor is a recent addition.  I’ve made Whiskey Truffles,  Grand Marnier Truffles and now Godiva Chocolate Liquor Truffles. 

I bathed them all in melted chocolate – dark or white. 




Then added a little drizzle for some pizzazz.  He is now a happy chocoholic. 





I’m not indulging in the truffles since they contain soy so I will take his word that they are primo. 

Today I was super busy prepping my stuff for my Girl Scout meeting on Thursday but I did find time to feed myself (and D of course). 

Lunch was the usual – Weetabix, pumpkin, plain yogurt, cinnamon, stevia and sunflower seed butter.




And some more protein in the form of egg whites and swiss cheese.   





My gorgeous dinner salad contained lettuce, zucchini, red pepper, celery, apple, chicken and cashews.  I do not use dressing anymore and I really love the natural flavors of all the components.  





I ended the meal with a few dates and sunflower seed butter. I really dig this combo – then again I love sunflower seed butter on just about anything.  And dates are like candy – so sweet and yummy. 





Time to go hang with my guys before the little one heads up to bed.  I hope you have a good one.

When I was in London, they were everywhere, but I only find them in health food stores/sections now.

Those truffles look so decadent and amazing!
