Chocolate Truffles

 

Total Time : 2 hours

Yields : 24 truffles


Base Ingredients:


  • 8 oz quality chocolate, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature


Steps


  1. Add chopped chocolate and butter to a large bowl. Heat cream, either on stove or in microwave, until simmering. Pour cream over chocolate and let sit for about five minutes. Do not stir the chocolate during this time!

  2. After five minutes has passed, add any extra ingredients that you'd like. Stir the mixture until it is cohesive and there are no lumps. Pour mixture into a large and deep pan, I used a sheet cake pan. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  3. After one hour, use a spoon, and your hands, to shape the truffles. Let them sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes more; this will make them easier to work with. Remove the truffles from the fridge and roll in desired toppings.
