10-12 truffless
Thick, creamy, chewy...once you have one truffle you won't be able to stop. Make for a bite-sizes dessert for a party or for your loved one on Valentine's Day.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Chop, shave, or grate chocolate and place in a large bowl.
  2. Pour the heavy cream into the saucepan and bring it to a simmer (not a boil).
  3. Allow to simmer for 1-2 minutes and then quickly pour over the chocolate in the bowl.
  4. Cover the bowl with a large towel and let set for 5 minutes. Using a whisk, stir the mixture until it is well blended, creamy and smooth.
  5. Next, either move the mixture to a large container or cover the bowl it is currently in with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  6. Once the truffles have been set, use a cookie scoop or deep spoon and scoop out the mixture and roll into balls in between your hands until smooth.
  7. Roll into the cocoa powder until covered and repeat until all of the truffles have been rolled.
  8. Store the truffles in the fridge.
