CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

Makes about 30

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    2 tablespoons liqueur such as Cognac or Grand Marnier or plain vanilla extract
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa, sifted

Preparation

  • Place chocolate in a bowl.
    Bring cream to a boil in a small, heavy saucepan. Pour cream over chocolate.
    Let stand for 3 to 5 minutes; gently stir until smooth. Add liqueur and stir to combine.
    Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. Sift cocoa over a baking sheet.
    To shape the truffles use one of the following methods:

    1. Using a measuring spoon, scoop up 1 teaspoon of chocolate, and roll into a ball about 3/4 inch across. Drop into cocoa; roll each truffle in cocoa to coat.
    2. using a pastry bag with a 3/8-inch opening or tip, pipe into mounds (about 3/4 inch high and 1 inch wide) on parchment-lined baking sheets. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Drop into cocoa; roll each truffle in cocoa to coat.
    Chill until firm. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
