Having had such a bounty of beetroot at our allotment again, I’ve been experimenting with sweet as well as savoury dishes. This creation was a real quickie I discovered with some leftover cooked beetroot we had in mash the other day. I was about to put it into a chocolate brownie mixture as that was the obvious thing to do but my husband was checking on his sloe port and I thought some boozy truffles might make for a lovely after dinner treat.
And they really did. We watched Downton, sipped on port and pretended to be sat in the elegant drawing room being served by Carson. Perfect Sunday night.
(Boozy) Beetroot Truffles
As lovely as they were I think they’re a little rich to have everyday but would make a perfect Christmas present. I’d say they’ll keep for a week or so in the fridge like most other truffles and instead of the cocoa you could roll them in nibbed hazelnuts, edible glitter or even chocolate strands.
