Just give me a basic recipe and place me in a kitchen. All of my creative juices start to fly and pretty soon I’ve changed the recipe to suit my mood or the season. Hmmmm, I wonder what these truffles would taste like if I added some peppermint oil? It’s Saint Paddy’s Day. I’m feeling the need to do something green. Uh-oh, no prunes. (Yes, this chocolate truffle recipe calls for prunes.) That’s okay, we’ll replace the prunes with raisins. It’s the texture we’re after. Here’s the basic recipe, adapted from George Mataljan’s World’s Healthiest Foods. This time I replaced the prunes with a cup of raisins, left out the maple syrup and coconut, and added a couple drops of highest quality peppermint oil. (Yes, that little 0.5 ounce bottle was $27.) I wonder how many changes you have to make before you call a recipe your own. . .
