    Brelise's Note:

    I worked at a pastry shop for a few years and became addicted to their hand rolled truffles. I prefer dark chocolate, although they could be done with milk or white. This is a very versatile recipe. I love the basic chocolate, but adding your favorite liquor or flavoring makes for a great batch of truffles too. These truffles have a soft rich center, and a slight chocolate crisp shell, covered in cocoa powder. Simply perfection. You can’t buy anything like these in the store.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 40

    Yield:

    truffles

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 12 ounces dark chocolate chips (60%-75% cocoa)
    • 1/4 cup butter

    • cocoa powder (sifted)
    • 2 tablespoons liquor (optional)
    • 1 pinch salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Begin with a saucepan. Over medium heat, bring cream just to a boil. Remove from heat.
    2. 2
      Add the 12oz of chocolate to the hot cream. Stir until smooth.
    3. 3
      Let sit for a few minutes, add butter 1/2 Tablespoon at a time. Stir until smooth. Stir in optional liquor or flavoring with the pinch of salt.

      Break chocolate bars into small shards. In metal bowl, over low heat, heat chocolate stirring and scraping sides with a rubber spatula the entire time. Once smooth, remove from heat. Let sit for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

      Bring out truffles and one by one roll them in the melted chocolate and drop them into the cocoa powder. After you've done 5 or so roll them around the powder until covered and set them aside. You may need to reheat the chocolate mid way through, just follow the same steps.

      After all are covered in cocoa powder, take a med-large sifter and roll them around to remove excess cocoa.

      These will keep for 2 weeks. They cannot be frozen because of their chocolate shells.

      These are amazing! I made them during a snow day and fed them to friends, family, and coworkers. Everyone wanted the recipe. These really are the best of the best. The extra coat of chocolate is a bit of a pain, but it really does give make them a step above the rest. I used 2 tablespoons of Chambord. But next time I will test Grand Marnier. Great Recipe! I'm so glad I tried this one!
