Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

12 oz
bittersweet chocolate
1/4 c
sugar
1 c
heavy cream
1/4 c
whipping cream
1/2 tsp
pepermint extract
12
candy canes, crushed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pour both types of cream, sugar and extract into a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil on low heat.
2
Chop up the bittersweet chocolate and put into a bowl.
3
Pour boiling cream mixture over the chocolate and stir until smooth.
4
Place bowl in the fridge for 2 3/4 - 3 hours to firm up.
5
Using a teaspoon, scoop out firm chocolate and roll into walnut size truffle. (it gets a little messy, but completely worth it!)
6
Drop truffle into a bowl or container of crushed candy canes and completely cover. I usually shake the container to completely cover instead of rolling it with my fingers to avoid getting candy cane all over your fingers.
7
Put completed truffles into an airtight container and place in the fridge or freezer to firm up.
