Sweet Little Details: Mocha Punch and Nutella Truffles

IMG_0009Social Graces had an amazing time at the Bridal Expo this past weekend.  It was nice meeting so many brides, please give us a shout if you have any questions about who we are or what we can offer you.

On Tuesday, Megan talked about her idea of a Winter Wedding and today, I’d like to talk about some desserts I would incorporate into a Winter Wedding from our favorite baker, Sweet Little Details.

First, a Mocha Punch

Mocha Punch

3 cups strongly brewed coffee

2 cups sugar

2 cups heaving cream

7 cups milk

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 bottle Hershey’s Syrup

Dissolve sugar in hot coffee and let cool. In a large (very large) bowl, add cream, milk, vanilla and syrup. Mix until combined. Place in freezer safe container and freeze overnight. Remove from freezer 2 to 2 1/2 hours before serving. It will be slushy and delicious.

Accompanied by Nutella Truffles

Nutella Truffles 

Makes 18-20 truffles

12 ounces semi sweet chocolate

2 Tablespoons butter

3/4 cup Nutella

3/4 cup Rice Krispies, slightly chopped

1 cup toasted hazelnuts (I’m going to be honest, the first batch I used cashews because it was what I had on hand and they were still delicious…so if you don’t have hazelnuts…those are an option.)

In a double boiler melt chocolate and butter until smooth. Remove from heat and add Nutella. Add rice krispies and 3/4 cup hazelnuts. Let cool until chocolate mixture is soft but can hold shape, 1-2 hours depending on temperature. Once chocolate has reached this state, take about 2 teaspoons and shape into balls. Roll in toasted hazelnuts. refrigerate until set.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
