Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

I thought that I had published this post, but it has been in my draft for a very long time. Simple to make and requires few ingredients. It disappeared within minutes after I made them. You can roll them in cocoa powder or chopped nuts. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Semi-sweet chocolate grated/chopped  or dark chocolate – 4.5 oz ( 1/2 + 1/4 cup+ 1 tbsp)
  • Heavy whipping cream – 1/4 cup
  • Unsalted butter – 1 tbsp, chopped
  • Cointreau – 1 tsp (optional)
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder – for dusting

Method:

  • Pour the heavy cream in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate and stir until it melts completely.
  • Add the butter and stir until it melts.
  • Stir in the Cointreau.
  • Transfer it to a bowl and cover it with a plastic wrap.
  • Make sure that the plastic wrap touches the surface of the chocolate mixture.
  • Refrigerate overnight or until it is firm enough to roll
  • Roll a tbsp of the mixture into balls and refrigerate until firm.
  • Roll the balls in cocoa powder.
  • Dust the excess cocoa powder using a brush and refrigerate until ready to serve.
