Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate is my favorite flavor and I have never met a truffle that I didn't like. Ina's chocolate truffles were easy to execute and delicious to eat.
Ina uses a combination of bittersweet and semisweet chocolate. I substituted my trusty Trader Joe's dark chocolate which I believe is 60-70% cocoa. Along with heavy cream the flavors added are Grand Marnier liqueur, coffee and vanilla extract. I left out the Grand Marnier since I was giving them to someone who does not drink. I rolled the chocolate using a one teaspoon scoop which is a nice bite. The only trouble I had was rolling them in powdered sugar after they had been rolled in cocoa powder. The powdered sugar would not stick. 
Chocolate Truffles page 221 or available from the Food Network.

  1. I made a similar chocolate truffle. Used the same dark chocolate. Like your two tone truffles.

  2. Biting into a chocolate truffle is probably my favorite thing. They can be dangerous to my hips to keep around, hahaha.
