Chocolate Curacao Smoked Paprika Truffles and November's LOL Food Blogger Posts

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.

On a lighter note, below are the posts that made me smile, giggle, laugh or all three this month...
