It’s time to enjoy some time with the kids making these Magical Bittersweet Chocolate Truffles, plus an episode of “Just Add Magic.” This post is sponsored; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that I’ve really relied heavily on Amazon for many of the shows my kids watch these days. It just seems increasingly hard to find shows for kids on basic TV anymore. I have to say though, I love the benefits of being able to view shows on Amazon though, anytime of day and without commercials! It’s just the way to go these days.
These past few weeks, my son and I have really enjoyed the show, “Just Add Magic,” on Amazon. It’s about a group of girls that have a gift of magic, but it intertwines with cooking. In order to make the magic work, they have to cook with certain spices and ingredients. They have a cookbook that they carry around with different recipes such as “Spill the Beans”, “Trust Me Taboulli”, and “Make it Visible Vinegar Pie.” I decided though to try out the “Bitter Truth Truffle”, I’ll say too these are bitter but they are delicious!
Of course, since my son and I enjoyed some of these shows together, I decided to get my kids involved in making the truffles. It’s actually a great recipe for all ages, because while you roll the truffles in balls, the little kids can help too. My daughter loved that part of the recipe almost as much as eating them! The great part about making truffles is that you can roll them around in your favorite toppings. We used crushed pecans and powdered sugar for ours; however, you can also use toasted coconut, sprinkles, or additional cocoa powder. I love to have a variety when we make these because they are fun for the whole family to enjoy. My daughter loves rolling them in powdered sugar, but her favorite to eat is the ones with sprinkles, of course.
My son and I though have enjoyed our little at-home date nights watching this show and enjoying our truffles. We’ve talked about all sorts of recipes now that we would love to try. I really enjoy it when I find a good show that we can watch together and this is certainly a fun one. It reminds me a lot of the shows that I used to watch as a kid. I love that it adds a little mystery and fun into cooking too.
Now, it’s time to enjoy some truffles and a fun show!

We love truffles in this house. These 2 look delicious. Very simple to make.
Thanks for the tip on the show Just Add Magic. We’re always looking for new shows to add to our Amazon watch list. I love the idea of making the truffles together as a group activity. It’s a fun and tasty treat!
