    KissKiss's Note:

    Okay so they're not a secret anymore. I hesitated to publish this recipe, but it's just too good not to share. If you don't like Brandy, I suppose dark rum, Grand Marnier, or Bourbon would be good, too.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 lb semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons brandy
    • 1/4-1/2 cup Ghirardelli sweet ground chocolate and cocoa (comes in a gold canister)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the chocolate chips in a glass bowl.
    2. 2
      In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a boil and then pour it over the chocolate.
    3. 3
      Shake the bowl gently to let the cream settle into the chocolate, then cover the bowl with a plate or a lid to allow the chocolate to melt (takes about 5 minutes).
    4. 4
      Whisk to mixture until smooth and shiny. Stir in the Brandy. Cover the SURFACE of the CHOCOLATE with the plastic wrap and put in a cool place for about two hours to let the chocolate firm up. (Do not simply put the plastic over the bowl. If you do, the chocolate with develop a "skin" like pudding does.).
    5. 5
      Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. Use two spoons to drop 1/2 to 1-inch mounds of chocolate on the paper.
    6. 6
      Chill your hands under cold water (then dry them), and roll the mounds between your palms to shape them into smooth round balls.
    7. 7
      Pour the cocoa/ground chocolate onto a plate or bowl, and roll the truffles in the chocolate using a clean spoon to help you coat them. Refrigerate the truffles until ready to serve.
    8. 8
      To serve, gently scoop the truffles out of the cocoa with a fork and put them in small candy cups or a decorate platter. I like to use a small silver platter than I've refrigerated for nice presentation.

      Excellent truffle recipe. It is well-written and easy to follow. This was my first time making truffles and they turned out great - I even got lots of compliments. Thanks for sharing your secret recipe.
