Makes 2 pounds of Truffles (approx. 60-80 pieces).

1½ lbs. bitter sweet chocolate
1 pint heavy cream
1 cup cocoa powder

1. Scald the cream by microwaving it for a few minutes (approx. 4-8)

2. Meanwhile - Break or cut the chocolate into ½" size pieces.

3. Add 1 pound of the chocolate to the hot cream while stirring.

4. Once dissolved - add to a shallow container and cover.

5. Cool in fridge until solid enough to form the truffles.

6. Scoop out (with a small ice-cream scoop or a tea spoon) small portion size amounts, and roll lightly between your palms - place on wax paper in the fridge for a few minutes.

7. While the truffles are cooling: Place the remainder of the chocolate in a bowl. Microwave in 45-60 second intervals (stir in between) until melted.

8. With some melted chocolate in your palm: roll each truffle to coat and finish off by rolling in cocoa powder.

Optional: Any flavor such as extracts, flavored oils, crushed espresso beans, chopped nuts or liquors can be added to the recipe.
