CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

Ingredients

1 cup Heavy Cream
2 cups Callebaut Dark Chocolate *
1/2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp Orange Flavored Liqueur * *
Confectioner’s Sugar
Cocoa Powder
Finely Chopped Nuts

  1. Heat heavy cream on stove until steaming; do not boil.
  2. Add chocolate to a heatproof mixing bowl. Pour steaming cream over the chocolate and let sit for about 20 seconds to melt chocolate slightly.
  3. With a handheld whisk, slowly mix cream and chocolate together, until just incorporated (about 2-3 minutes).
  4. Continue mixing slowly and add orange flavored liquer and vanilla until just incorporated. Let the mixture sit for at least 1 hour.
  5. When the mixture is firm, use two tablespoons, one to scoop the chocolate and the other to push onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll the truffles with the palms of your hands to create a round ball (wear latex gloves).
  6. Roll the truffles in cocoa powder, confectioners’ sugar or finely chopped nuts to finish.

* you can use just about any chocolate type (milk, white, dark or blonde) or percentage you want! (see choosing your chocolate)

** flavoring is optional and also open to many others! Raspberry – chambord, frangelica, or your favorite  etc.
