What You'll Need:

First things first, gather your ingredients. You'll need:

  • 12 ounces of high-quality dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • Cocoa powder, chopped nuts, or shredded coconut for coating

Let's Get Cooking:

1. In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat.

2. Add the chopped chocolate and butter to the hot cream. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth and well combined.

3. Pour the chocolate mixture into a shallow dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm.

4. Using a spoon or melon baller, scoop out small portions of the chilled chocolate mixture and roll into balls. (Try not to eat all the mixture before rolling!)

5. Roll the truffles in cocoa powder, chopped nuts, or shredded coconut for that extra touch of flavor and texture.

Time to Indulge:

Now comes the best part - tasting your homemade chocolate truffles! Pop one (or two, or three) into your mouth and savor the rich, velvety goodness. These truffles make the perfect gift for friends and family, or simply enjoy them all to yourself. No judgment here
