Truffles

March 20, 2011
I made these for a Bridal Shower that I was supposed to host, but never happened. We were all sick with the puke bug so I had to cancel.  I have to tell you, they were so worth it after 24 hours of purging and fasting. People who love to cook and eat should never be punished with Gastroenteritis.
Dark Chocolate Truffles
2 cup(s) Dark Chocolate Chips or equivalent of
1/2  cup(s) Unsweetened Cocoa
1/3 cup(s) heavy whipping cream
6 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup of chopped pistachios
Directions

1.  In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer.  Do not boil.

2.  Add the butter and stir until melted. Add the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and pour into a shallow bowl.

3.  Cool, cover, and refrigerate the mixture until firm, at least 2 hours.

4.  Using a melon baller or small spoon, roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in the cocoa.

5.  Enjoy immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
