Simple Truffles

They are so easy....

  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate cut in bits
  • 2 Tblsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipped cream
  • 2 Tblsp booze (Cognac, Grand Marnier, Rum, Kaluha etc.)

    Put chocolate bits in a bowl (Stainless steel medium sized) Bring Cream and Butter to boil in a pot. Pour boiling cream over the chocolate and let sit 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Add Booze. Cover in the fridge until firm. (Usually over night, or all day)

    Place toppings on a plate. Make balls with the mixture (hands or melon baller) Roll on plate in toppings (I like coconut, but you can use crushed nuts or anything you'd like) then place on wax paper on cookie sheet. Cover and put in the fridge until firm. Eat whenever, for long lasting truffles you may Freeze for a couple months or refridgerate for a couple weeks. They taste better at room temperature so plan ahead if you are preserving them for later.

    Experiment with different booze and toppings. You can use a drizzle on them with liquid toppings or roll them in various dry toppings.
