Brownie Batter Truffles #SundaySupper
What do you think of when you read, Brownie Batter Truffles? Does your mind go where mine does to images of licking the bowl of the brownie batter and then dipping that batter into chocolate?
I am someone who raised my kids telling them that they can’t eat the brownie batter because it has raw eggs that can make them sick. Then, when my kids weren’t looking, I would sneak a lick or two of the batter, because I have the will power of a two year old.
Fast forward to the Sunday Supper group page posting of an upcoming post. Here I discovered that Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs was not only one of the Food and Wine Conference sponsors but, also, the sponsor of today’s blog post. I was delighted to apply to participate, only AFTER I did my homework.
Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs really are safe for eating uncooked. Their eggs are pasteurized to eliminate the risk of Salmonella bacteria and viruses like Avian influenza. The pasteurization process is really fascinating and I encourage you to check it out.
It took less than 30 seconds to decide that I had to make Brownie Batter Truffles for today’s Sunday Supper event. The sheer joy of being able to eat an entire truffle made with brownie batter that has raw egg that is safe to eat is almost more than I can handle…almost! I guess I won’t have to sneak those bowl-licking spoonfuls of batter anymore thanks to Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs.
