I'm going to be upfront with you: the kittens aren't doing so good. Kelly doesn't appear to have much milk, and she's really fretting about something and doesn't really let the kittens suckle as much as they need to. So, they don't gain weight. Any. At all. That's not good. So we're hand-rearing them, feeding them every three or four hours. It's nerve-wracking... but it's really all we can do. I sure hope they'll survive! Keep your fingers crossed for us, will you?
However, I want to share a little something that will definitely make YOU gain weight, for the weekend. Maya Gold is a chocolate bar by Green & Black, flavored with oranges and chili. It's really delicious and it's perfect to make complex-tasting truffles. I brought some into work, and one co-worker popped one in her mouth and said "ooh! This isn't appropriate for daytime! These truffles taste sexy!" And they do.
Maya Gold Truffles
200 g Green & Blacks Maya Gold
150 ml cream (35-40% fat content)
25 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
Chop the chocolate fairly finely and place in a bowl. Bring the cream to a boil and pour it over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Add the butter, and keep stirring. Place the bowl in the fridge to firm up, until you can roll truffles from it.
Roll them as rustic as you like, and then roll in cocoa powder. I then suggest placing in the freezer for a very short time to firm up, and then keep them in the fridge.
