Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220 C/450 F.
  2. Place hazelnuts on an oven tray and roast until the skin cracks and the hazelnuts colour a little but not too much. Place hazelnuts in a tea towel or kitchen paper and rub them against one another to remove most of the skin.
  3. Place hazelnuts in a food processor and blend to a powder.
  4. Bring cream and milk to the boil in a saucepan and on a low heat, stir in chocolate until it has all melted. Stir in hazelnut powder and Grand Marnier.
  5. Transfer preparation to a bowl and refrigerate for about 30-40 minutes, during which time you need to stir it two or three times with a wooden spoon. It will stiffen like thick icing.
  6. Stir chocolate mixture again before spooning it into the piping bag. Pipe small mounds of chocolate, about the size of a twenty cent piece or shape the mixture with a teaspoon. It is easier to do this on baking paper. Refrigerate truffles for about 30 minutes.
  7. Place cocoa in a bowl. Using a spatula, lift each truffle and roll in the cocoa. To obtain a round shape, roll the coated truffles rapidly between the hands without pressing too hard. Then roll the truffles again in the cocoa and refrigerate until required.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
