Learn to make raspberry truffles
We will gather for another fun afternoon to learn how to make raspberry truffles. Guess what? It takes just four ingredients to make something so delicious: freeze dried raspberries, dark chocolate melting wafers, white chocolate melting wafers, and heavy whipping cream (see photo for example ingredients). Start gathering these four items to be ready for the day. All ingredients can be found at most grocery stores (Target, Fred Meyer, Trader Joe’s). Here are links to the products at Fred Meyer: raspberries, dark chocolate, white chocolate, cream.
We hope to see you on Zoom right here at Noon on Sunday, Aug 23. Invite a friend!

Tara's quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her as far as Harvard and Cambridge.
