Are you a fan of rich, velvety chocolate? Look no further than these delicious dark chocolate truffles. With just four simple ingredients, you can create a decadent dessert that’s perfect for any occasion.
To start, you’ll need:
- 8 ounces of high-quality dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
- 1/2 cup of heavy cream
- 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- Cocoa powder, for rolling
Begin by heating the heavy cream and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, remove the pan from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate. Keep stirring until the chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
Pour the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Once the mixture is firm, use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out small portions and roll them into balls. Roll each ball in cocoa powder until completely coated.
These truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy them on their own as a sweet treat, or pair them with your favorite dessert wine for an extra-special indulgence.
