Going CANDYLICIOUS along with Daring Bakers..

I barely made it to this month’s challengeL
I was down for the last few days with a pretty bad eye infection and flu..
Antibiotics did its work well and I am up and functioning just in time for the challenge.
This month’s challenge is one of the Sweetest challenge I have ever seen.. CandiesJ
The lovely hosts Lisa and Mandy shared, two methods for tempering chocolate and a plethora of recipes for various candies.
We had to make two candies..one with Chocolate and other of our choice

 I chose to stick with two of the simplest ones

Milk Chocolate and Almond Truffles

255 g Milk chocolate finely chopped
125 ml Double Cream
½ Cup Chopped almonds
Desiccated Coconut for Coating

Finely chop the milk chocolate. Place into a heatproof medium sized bowl
Heat cream in a saucepan until just about to boil
Pour the cream over the chocolate and stir gently until smooth and melted
Allow to cool slightly, about 10 minutes
Stir in the nutes
Leave to cool and set for a few hours in the fridge
Bring to room temperature to use

Forming the truffles:
Using teaspoons, scoop round balls of ganache
Roll them between the palms of your hands to round them off
Finish off by rolling the truffle on desiccated coconut
Place on parchment paper and leave to set Tip:

Caramel Fudge

Adapted from here
40 g butter
½ cups brown sugar
1 tspn Maple syrup
130 ml condensed milk
60 g white chocolate chips

 Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add brown sugar, Maple syrup and condensed milk; stir over a medium heat until boiling.
Lower heat and cook, stirring for 5-7 minutes.
Remove from heat and add chocolate; stir until smooth.
The fudge will start to set quite quickly, so immediately pour into prepared pan, then spread evenly with the back of a spoon.
Allow to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then refrigerate until firm.
