DIRECTIONS

  • Bring the cream and sugar to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate, which has been broken up into small chunks and placed in a clean bowl.
  • Stir gently adding the room temperature butter.
  • Continue to stir until all the chocolate has dissolved.
  • As the mixture cools, it will begin to thicken.
  • Next, add the cassis and continue to stir for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Cover with a kitchen towel and place in a cool area but do not refrigerate.
  • It is best to leave it overnight for it to cool thoroughly and start to firm up.
  • Take your chocolate truffle mix, which should be firm, yet, soft to the touch.
  • Place it into a piping bag that has a quarter inch nozzle attached.
  • If you don't have a piping bag, just drop teaspoonsful of the mixture.
  • On a clean tray with parchment paper, pipe out long sausage length strips of the chocolate truffle.
  • When all has been piped out, take a small kitchen knife with the tip dipped in hot water then cut the chocolate truffles into 1 1/4 inch lengths.
  • Using a clean pastry brush, brush 5 or 6 chocolate truffles at a time with a little of the melted chocolate.
  • One by one, roll them gently in the palms of your hand and then drop them into either the cocoa powder or the powdered sugar.
  • Roll them around and remove any excess sugar or cocoa.
  • Place in a storage container or serving dish.
  • It is best to store these truffles in a cool part of the house but do not refrigerate.
