'Low syn' taster night! Would you think I was crazy for bringing my roasties?

#1
I was going to take my chilli con carni but I don't really want to spend time making it when I don't want it for my tea tonight so it would be left for lunch tomorrow - just seems like a waste. However - following someones advice on here I made some roast potatos last night with garlic salt and soy sauce and they were amazing!

I wondered if its a bit weird to take roast potatos? :p They won't take long to make and I think they are really nice - also since I hadn't had a roast dinner since I started until yesterday maybe it will let some of the newer members know it can be done.

I think roasties are a great idea. I made a roast dinner last night and made rosemary and thyme roasties and was so impressed with them that fry light achieved even better ones than my Christmas 'goose fat' roasties.

They sound yum I'd definitely be giving those a try!
I've made choccy cake (Stacey's recipe) and cut it into 0.5 syn squares for our taster tonight....was initially worried people might not want to try it but to be honest at least that means I get to take it all home :D

We always have ours on the last WI of the month. I love taster sessions!

we are having a taster night this week too, could i have the recipe for those?
Here you go!


CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

Total syns: 60
30 truffles = 2 syns per truffle
(can make truffles bigger or smaller to suit – just adjust syns accordingly)

200g good quality chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
6 tbsp strong black coffee (such as espresso - I use instant made up quite strong)
2 tbsp clear honey
2 tsp Splenda, or to taste (optional)
1 tbsp cocoa powder, to dust

1) Melt chocolate in a large bowl over simmering water or alternatively microwave until melted.

2) Gently pour in the coffee and slowly mix it into the chocolate until the consistency thickens. The texture of the chocolate will start to seize and thicken almost instantly.

3) Add the honey a tablespoon at a time and slowly mix it in until you get a highly glossy chocolate mixture. This should only take a couple of minutes. Taste and add Splenda if desired.

4) Chill the bowl in the fridge for an hour or until the truffle mixture is nearly solid.

5) Sieve the cocoa powder onto a plate. Scrape a teaspoonful of the mixture into the palm of your hand and roll into a marble-sized ball, then roll through the cocoa powder until fully coated and pop into an airtight container. Repeat the process until all the mixture is used up and store in the fridge. Dust with additional Splenda if desired.

I usually use a nice one like Green&Blacks but it doesn't really matter so long as it's a dark one that's at least 70% cocoa.

Also you may need to leave it in fridge for more than an hour - I seem to recall leaving it for a couple of hours to somewhat solidify as it made it easier to roll. They tend to go melty quickly in your hands so if the mix is firm and crumbles, don't worry as you can warm it with your hands to make them truffles, whereas if the mix is too soft still then it will just stick to your hands.
