Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place chocolate chips into a glass mixing bowl, and put aside.
  • On stovetop, bring heavy whipping cream and butter to a boil. Remove from heat.
  • Pour hot cream mixture into bowl of chocolate chips. Let sit for 3-5 minutes.
  • Starting in the middle of the bowl, slowly start stirring the chocolate and cream until all of the chocolate is melted, and the cream has disappeared into it – it should be smooth.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, preferably resting right on top of the surface – this prevents a skin from forming while it cools. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour or two, until it’s pretty solid.
  • Once solid, scoop out small balls (a teaspoon or so), and roll them into balls. Try to handle the chocolate as quickly as possible, or it will melt.
  • Then, roll them (or dip them) and eat!

Notes

* Stuff to roll them in: There are many ways to finish off truffles. For variety, you can have several different finishes available, all in their own bowls. Some options include: cocoa, confectioners/icing sugar, coconut (toasted or not), cinnamon sugar, finely chopped nuts, finely chopped chocolate covered espresso beans, etc! For these truffles, I prefer to use cocoa or icing sugar – keep it simple, let the mint shine!
