For the chocolate truffles, I used this basic recipe from Joy of Baking
I added two tablespoons of Chocolate Curacao I brought home from a scuba diving trip to Curacao and rolled them in a mixture of cocoa powder, powdered sugar and smoked red paprika.
The smoked paprika added a little bitter bite to all the sweet chocolatelyness.
Tomorrow is World AIDS Day. Check out the macarons I made HERE to commemorate it.
