Champagne Truffles Recipe


Champagne Truffles          

8 oz Cream
1 lb Bittersweet chocolate
1 oz Butter
1 oz Cognac
1 lb Bittersweet chocolate
1 lb Cocoa

It is important to use an excellent quality chocolate when making truffles since it is the primary ingredient.

Bring the cream to a boil  and pour it over the cut chocolate. Allow to stand 1-to-2 minutes and stir smooth. Beat in the softened butter and cool to set. Beat with an electric mixer (using a paddle attachment if available) on medium speed until light. Beat in Cognac. Pipe out small truffles on parchment or waxed paper with a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tube. Refrigerate to set. Melt the chocolate. Sift the cocoa into a deep pan. Dip the truffles in the melted chocolate and
then deposit them in the cocoa, shaking the pan to cover them. After the covering sets, shake the truffles in a strainer to remove the excess cocoa.

Yield: 24 servings
