These are fantastic if you are a chocolate lover. They will be apart of the online bake sale that will be taking place January 31st. Below is how the online bake sale will take place.
On Monday, January 31st at 7am EST. I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid of $15. Once the items are officially posted all buyers will then e-mail email@example.com with a bid of what they would like to purchase.
To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed, only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative.
Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until 9pm EST to submit their bid for the auction.
I will be updating the current bids at the bottom of the bake sale post throughout the day so that you can see the current high bid. I am hoping this will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet.
All winners will be announced a few hours after the bake sale has closed.
Each winner will then donate the specified amount to my TNT fundraising page. Once the donation goes through I will e-mail the baker the winner’s address and it will be the baker’s responsibility to send the baked goods to the winner within 72 hours.
The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.
Hazelnut and Rolo Chocolate Truffles
1/4 cup whipping cream
4 oz. bar of bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 oz. bar of semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 Tbsp. hazelnut spread
1 cup hazelnuts, finely chopped
1 stick of candy rolos
Bring the whipping cream to simmer in a double boiler
Add the chocolate and hazelnut spread and stir until smooth
Transfer the mixture to glass bowl and chill for about an hour
With an ice cream scoop or spoon scoop the chocolate mixture to form a small ball (If chocolate is too hard let it sit for a bit)
Roll in your hands to secure a smooth look; then roll in hazelnuts
For the rolo truffles you will do the same except when you scoop the chocolate mixture you will flatten in the palm of your hand
Place one rolo in the center and work the chocolate mixture around the rolo and then roll in your hands to make it into a ball
Store in refrigerator and set out about 10-20 minutes before serving
