The classic chocolate truffle. Always in demand.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream

  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder


Directions

  • Heat the cream almost to a boil. Put the chopped chocolate in a medium bowl, pour the hot cream over it, and whisk gently until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. (Hint: up until this point, this is just a simple ganache). Allow to cool and harden. When ganache is solid enough to manipulate, scoop into 1″ balls and roll in cocoa. Makes about 24 truffles or 2/3 cup of ganache.
