Dark Chocolate Truffles

We had a lot of fun rolling our own chocolate truffles at our blog meeting last night. Although these decadent treats are a breeze to make, their success is dependent on the quality of ingredients. Try to get the best quality chocolate you can without breaking the bank; personally I like Trader Joe's Pound Plus dark chocolate bars.

Dark Chocolate Truffles


1 pound dark chocolate
1 cup cream
1/3 cup sugar (or more, or less depending on how sweet the chocolate is)
Around 1/3 cup cocoa powder
Optional: cinnamon, anise, cayenne pepper, raspberry puree, coffee etc


Crush or cut the chocolate into tiny pieces.
Heat the cream and sugar, stirring constantly, right to the point where it starts to boil. Then add the vanilla, and any other flavorings.
Pour the hot cream over the chocolate.
Stir until mixed.
Refrigerate for 3 hours.
Roll into balls and coat with cocoa powder.

These delicacies are in fact a breeze to make!
