Amazing Chocolate Truffles

Mexican Chocolate Truffles

EXTRAORDINARILY EASY CHOCOLATE DESSERT

Melt in your mouth truffles are so fancy, so good and so easy to make. You can customize the basic recipe with almost anything, from espresso to almond but we love the warmth of cinnamon and the smokey heat of chili to pair with our ice cider.

Melting Chocolate for Truffles

 

MEXICAN CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES:

8oz baking chocolate (I recommend high quality, fair trade bittersweet dollops, like these from Tierra Farms)

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

Cayenne to taste!

Chocolate must be in small pieces. Heat cream in a sauce pan until it bubbles, turn off heat. Add chocolate and stir until melted and smooth. Let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

 

 

 

Making Truffles

 

Form into balls and do any of the following:

-roll in chili flakes and cocoa nibs
