Dark Chocolate Truffles Recipe
Here's an easy gift idea: Dip it in chocolate, dress it up and give it away.
1 lb. semisweet chocolate (pieces, chips or block)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Bring cream to simmer over very low heat. Add chocolate pieces and stir until smooth.
Pour chocolate mixture into a bowl and chill in refrigerator until it hardens (about two hours). Shape into candy-sized balls with dry, cool hands.
Roll in various toppings such as nuts, candy bits, coconut, or cocoa powder. Place in candy papers.
