Shannyn’s Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces of semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate (high quality, 62% cacao or higher), well chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • Cocoa powder

Method

  1. Place chocolate in a bowl and refrigerate.
  2. In a small, heavy saucepan bring the heavy whipping cream to a simmer (this may take a while, be sure to stir and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula every few minutes).
  3. Retrieve chocolate from fridge, pour cream over chocolate, folding from outside to in slowly.  Allow to stand for a few minutes then stir until smooth. (This chocolate base is called ganache.)
  4. Allow to cool, then place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove and with a teaspoon roll out balls of the ganache. Roll in your hands quickly (as it will melt from the heat of your hands) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
  5. Roll chocolate balls in cocoa powder place back in the refrigerator until needed.
