I had a Martha Stewart moment yesterday, however brief. The kids had written a cute poem on the refrigerator door with magnetic poetry, and I wanted to feature it on my blog for Easter. I decided to recreate Martha's blue-marbled white chocolate-covered truffle eggs seen here so that: a) I'd have an artsy image to go with the words; and b) I could eat some decent chocolate on Easter for a change.
However, the eggs didn't turn out so well. I don't know what kind of sweatshop Martha runs over there that produces truffle eggs so perfectly egg-shaped with marbling so perfectly sharp and well-defined yet appropriately whimsical, but I finally understand why her original recipe called for three pounds of white chocolate. You'll need that much or more if you hope to achieve anything even remotely egg-like. Even then, you still might end up with what resemble misshapen lumps of gorgonzola. If you have the patience, dedication, and skill for such a task, I suggest you turn your sights to med school.
Eff that. I coated the rest of the truffle eggs in cocoa powder and called it a day.
