Yesterday, I decided to try making my own chocolate truffles. The result is before you. They might not look as good as store-bought, but I assure you, they are delicious.
To make those, you will need:
300 gr dark chocolate
100 gr white chocolate
50 gr butter
1\3 cup chopped nuts
250 ml cream
2 tbsp. brandy or liqueur
cocoa powder or coconut chips
Break the chocolate and cut butter into small pieces; melt it all together, then add the cream, nuts and brandy. Let the whole thing cool off. The melted chocolate smells terrific!
Put into freezer for 2 hours (or more, if you feel it's too soft to work with), and roll those yummy chocolate balls in cocoa powder or coconut. That was when the real fun began! I wish I had a picture of my hands and face taken. I was covered with chocolate and cocoa powder... but I had such a good time!
Put the ready truffles back into freezer for another couple of hours and serve. Surprisingly, they come soft enough even out of the freezer.
