This truffle recipe is fun and easy, you can be very creative with it; maybe add some nutella to the chocolate to give it a more deeper hazelnut flavor or try different types of liqueur...say mint or Bailey's for St.Patrick's day!

2 oz
butter
17 oz
chocolate
3 oz
frangelico
assorted nuts, sprinkles, cocoa & powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the cream and butter into a small sauce pan and bring to the boil.

Remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate and let set for about a minute and stir until smooth.

Add the liqueur into the chocolate and stir through. Pour into a bowl and allow to cool in the refrigerator enough to thicken slightly. Stir periodically to insure a smooth mixture

Once the chocolate is cooled down, they can be finished in two different ways 1) Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a star tip nozzle and pipe the truffles onto parchment paper and refrigerate. 2) Scoop a spoon full of the chocolate mixture into your hand ( wear plastic gloves to do this it is very messy) then quickly roll into a ball, once formed place them back into the refrigerator to firm back up while preparing your garnishes.
5
Set up assorted nuts, sprinkles or sugars into bowls and roll the chilled truffles into the assorted garnishes, place onto a parchment tray to firm up, and keep chilled until ready to serve.

The truffles can be arranged on a cold serving tray as desired.
