Truffles are such a decadent treat, and really are very simple to make yourself at home. You can flavor them up in numerous different ways by changing up the extracts (vanilla, peppermint, almond, etc.), liqueurs (Grand Marnier, Frangelico, Amaretto, Framboise, Kahlua, etc.), spices, and by varying the sweetness of the chocolate that you use. Other than that the ingredient list is simple. Good quality chocolate (here I used all dark, because I love that rich, bitter, chocolate flavor), scalded heavy cream, and cocoa powder (to roll them in). I also like to add coffee, as I do whenever I am making anything with chocolate. Not enough to taste the coffee per se, it just makes the chocolate itself taste better. Perfect as a special treat with coffee after dinner, or as a gift wrapped up in a beautiful tin, these truffles are a great addition to anyone’s kitchen repertoire. Enjoy!
