Dark Chocoalte Truffle


Merry Christmas to you and your family!

P.S. Thank you, Joy, for the inspiration!

(makes 60 - 64 pcs)
Ingredients:
1 1/2 heavy cream
700 dark chocolate, chopped (I used Ikea dark chocolate) Try it if you haven't, it's cheap (CAD$0.99 per 100 gram) yet with decent quality
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp Kahlua
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup semi-sweet shredded coconut, lightly toasted
1 cup chopped walnut

Directions:
In a small saucepan heat the heavy cream in medium heat until it simmers.

Put the chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. When the cream is hot, pour it over the chocolate. Add the vanilla and Kahlua. Let the cream melt the chocolate for 5mins and then stir until silky smooth.

Cool the chocolate in the fridge for at least 2 hours. After the chocolate has cooled, roll the chocolate into small balls. If the chocolate is too cold, let it sit on the counter until you can roll it into small balls. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. When all of the chocolate truffles are rolled into balls, put them back in the fridge overnight.

Prepare the toppings you wish to use and roll the truffles in the toppings. I used cocoa powder, icing sugar, shredded coconut and walnut. Serve or keep in the fridge until ready to eat.
