Hello, friends! You may have noticed that I've been absent from the blog for a few weeks, which was longer than expected. May was a busy month full of baking and photographing things for clients and working on a special passion project. I also threw my parents an anniversary party, which was really great and I got to see a bunch of my family and friends all at once. It was nice to spend time with them, but now I'm ready to get back in the swing of all things blog related!
Tartufo may be the fanciest-to-eat but unfanciest-to-make dessert you should know about. It's an ice cream dessert that originated in Italy, and the name tartufo means 'truffle'. I first tried a chocolate mousse version of this dessert years ago at a local Italian restaurant. I always order it when we dine there, and digging for the amaretto-soaked cherry in the center is like a treasure hunt! This version is my own, but it doesn't depart too much from the original. It only takes about 5 ingredients to make and I think it's an elegant ending for a dinner party!
