Our contract partner’s favorite spring recipes!
Mrs. Wilma and Charlie simply love spring and that’s why they decided to return to TrainStation again! This time, they not only bring along some cool quests but also something special - their favorite Easter recipes.
Will you try them out?
Charlie’s chocolate truffles
There’s never enough of chocolate, right? Each year, I make ton of these yummy truffles and send them to my friends to celebrate the arrival of spring.
If baking is not your thing, then this is the right treat for you - they are easy to make and yet super tasty!
300 g of chocolate
165 ml of heavy cream
1 tsp of cinnamon
4 tbsp of cocoa powder
Toppings of your choice (chopped nuts, melted white chocolate, shredded coconut, etc.)
Chop the chocolate into fine pieces
Warm up the heavy cream in a small pot (but don’t boil it!)
Pour the heavy cream onto the mixed chocolate and add cinnamon, BUT: don’t stir it yet! Cover it with a foil and leave it melt for a few minutes.
Mix the chocolate with the cream afterwards and put it in the fridge for about 1-2 hours (until it’s solid)
Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and roll it into balls.
Roll the truffles into your favorite toppings and leave them set overnight
Share them with your beloved ones or just eat them all - no shame in that either!
Wilma’s spring salad
Mr. Bill and I aren’t the biggest fans of salads but this one rocks! It’s super easy yet incredibly fresh and yummy. Trust me, you’re gonna love it!
10 salad leaves
1 fresh fig
1 handful of walnuts
1/2 cup of feta cheese
2 slices of prosciutto
Wash and dry the salad leaves and put them on the bottom of the plate
Crumble the feta cheese onto a salad and put the prosciutto on top
Add the olive oil and finely chopped walnuts
Finish the salad with the fig cut in quarters
Serve with a glass of chilled Chardonnay, add a slice of fresh homemade bread and you’re in heaven.
