Female Speaker: You and I are going to start in on truffles. Now you know what truffles are, right? What are they?
Speaker: They're like little chocolates.
Female Speaker: Exactly, they're little chocolates. We have to get together some heavy cream which is right here, and this just gets poured directly into this pan and we're going to heat it up. So go ahead and pour it out in there. Do you have towels? Right here, reach for the towel. So I'm going to turn this on, there you go. So we have that on, just a nice medium heat so we're getting it hot. It's says just heat it up to the boiling point. That means that we just want to get it up to the point of boiling but not boiling really, really, really hard.
So we will have that and then we need ten-and-a-half ounces of milk chocolate. So we have this right here, we have dark chocolate and we have milk chocolate. So I'm going to mix a little together. Let's do that. Can you tell the difference? Do you see the different color in here? Now try one. That's the dark chocolate and that's the milk chocolate. This one is a milk chocolate. See which one you like better. You tell me.
Speaker: I like them both.
Female Speaker: You like them both, so should we mix them together, how about you Meagen(ph) do you think we should mix them together?
Speaker: I like them.
Female Speaker: You like them both? Alright. Well then I have a little bit of these and I know that this is about 11 ounces so I'm just going to take out a little bit of this, add some of these in, there we go, little mixture of the two. So once this half-a-cup is fully to the point of boiling, we are going to take these chocolate chips and throw them right in there and then completely stir them up. That's all we're going to do. This is a nonstick pan, so I am sure that you recall that we only use a wooden spoon or plastic in here. So you could see, this is almost to that boiling point, it's just simmering right on the side, so I'm going to turn that off. Then, Michael, you can stir in those lovely chocolate bits and here's your spoon you can help Manika(ph) and that's okay. I will need four --.
Next thing we're going to throw in some vanilla to season these up and then as soon as this cools down, since it's almost at boiling point, we have it hard enough so all the chocolate melts in there, but then we have to wait till it cools down a little bit so we can add a little bit of butter to it and then just simply refrigerate it and we'll scoop it out and have truffles. Right here, it's some more milk chocolate and I have it up here and it's just gently warming so that we can pop off and paint our truffles with that. That looks great! Good deal!
So now, since I have you two working on that, we are going to start some muffins down here. I have the recipe all laid out for us so that we have to get a cup of brown sugar, keep stirring, that's the all. Think of it as coco, hot coco, very think hot coco. So I'm just going to use this same mixing bowl because it just has this same kind of ingredients as long as nobody has a nut allergy. You can always use that. So Meagen(ph), I need you to put one cup of brown sugar in there and then we also need seven ounces of butter, Michael, will you find me seven? Let me see how many you can get. Show me where seven is, now that I showed you before.
So it's every two, so that is how many? Four, right. So then five, six, seven, that's where I need you to cut, so I need all of this butter aside from that little chunk and here's our butter nice, there you go.
Speaker: So I will just cut it through chunks.
Female Speaker: Yup, two, one, two, and then we'll have seven right there. How is that going? Almost smooth, keep going, good job, you're not spilling much. So we have that in here. Let's do -- you like getting sticky. Have you ever smelled molasses, what that's like? It kind of smells like candy to me. So we're going to use one third a cup, good job. We just need to leave this here and the rest of it, not just one chunk goes in here. All but one chunk. So I need this, this, this, all in there. You get the fun one. I need molasses from you and I need a third of the cup so here it is, this is really, really thick and really, really sticky. So that might take a little while to pour in there but I need that whole thing full, good job, nice.
Now, we have a garbage always, we keep up cleaning up behind ourselves, the garbage here and then I could have you wash your hands, that's the towel for you. Okay, so you have your molasses done, let's pour that right in here and watch how thick it is. Look at how thick that is. Can you imagine if you got that in here?
