Chocolate Truffles




Since my  recipe overhaul, I have not made a repeat complimentary dessert for nightly turn down service. I'm keeping my vow to myself to make something new and special to our in-house guests. It's all good so far and I'm happy with my achievement.

Chocolate work is something I take pleasure in doing so this week, I decided to continue working with this nature's wonder. What are chocolate truffles? They are bite-sized confectioneries made with chocolate and cream.

Chocolate truffles
Ingredients:
227 g semi-sweet dark chocolate
120 ml whipping cream
flavorings like vanilla, almond essence or liquor ( optional)

Place the chocolate in an aluminum bowl or heat proof bowl. Place the whipping cream in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer.
Pour the heated whipping cream over the chocolate and add the flavoring.Allow to stand for a few minutes for the chocolate to melt. Stir until smooth.
Allow to cool then chill for a couple hours.
Using a spoon, take some mixture and roll balls in your hands.



Place in a tray lined with parchment paper. ( I placed mine on a plate and they stick. My bad!) Chill for a couple hours more or overnight


Truffle Coatings:
cocoa powder
sifted icing sugar
colored jimmies or sprinkles



Roll in cocoa powder, sifted icing sugar or jimmies.


Place the candy on a muffin liner and back to the fridge until serving.


Enjoy this rich and decadent chocolate candy!
