Wow, the Disney Classic Bambi is celebrating 75 years this year! I didn’t realize that. It probably was the very first Disney animated movie I enjoyed with my siblings and made me fall in love with all things Disney. To mark this anniversary the Bambi Signature Collection is going to be released tomorrow on blu-ray and digital formats for us to enjoy. We love movie nights at home so we are gearing up for ours with fun activities and Flower Chocolate Truffles
Celebrating with “Flower” Chocolate Truffles – Recipe
We are getting ready for our Bambi movie night by making some Flower Chocolate Truffles. No, not flower as in the plant but rather as Bambi’s friend the skunk! Her eyes are the inspiration of this delicious recipe.
- 9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 5 ounces heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon espresso powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate grated or finely chopped
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1- Simmer all ingredients minus the chocolate until bubbles start forming at edges of pot.
- 2- Pour hot mix over chocolate and whisk until the mix is smooth
- 3- Place in fridge for two hours
- 4- Take the mix out and knead it a bit to warm it up some
- 5- Make big balls out of the mix
- 6- Melt the 4 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate
- 7- Dip the balls in the melted chocolate
- 8- Allow melted chocolate to cool off and harden
- To emulate the sparkly eyes that Flower in Bambi has, my princess decided sprinkles were needed, so we added them to the chocolate balls before we left them to harden
