Please help with truffle (choc.) flavorings
I want to make a recipe for Bittersweet Chocolate-Hazelnut Truffles that I saw on Epicurious. There is brandy and vanilla mixed in, along with some ground hazelnuts. Chopped, toasted hazelnuts coat them.
I don't have either hazelnuts or brandy. Can I substitute Frangelico and ground and chopped almonds? I know they're not related to the same nut. I don't want to use Amaretto because I just find it too cloying. tia
