Simple Dark Chocolate Truffles

In this article I will show you how to prepare simple Dark Chocolate Truffles. These chocolate bites are luxuriously rich and delicious. Because truffles are prone to melting, keep these little gems cool. Recipe makes 18 servings. Here are ingredients and directions:



4 ounces gluten-free semisweet chocolate
3 ounces gluten-free bittersweet chocolate
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream or soy or almond milk
1 tablespoon almond liqueur
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder


Line a 13 × 9-inch baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
In a food processor, combine chocolates and powdered sugar and process until chocolate is finely chopped.
In a medium saucepan, heat the cream over medium heat just until it starts to simmer. With the food processor on, pour the hot cream mixture through lid and process until the mixture is smooth. Add liqueur (if using). Scrape mixture onto pan and press down with spatula to an equal thickness. Chill 2 hours.
Working quickly, cut the chocolate into 18 equal-sized pieces. With your hands, quickly roll each piece into a ball and put it on a plate. Chill 15 minutes.
Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and quickly dredge 3 balls at a time in the cocoa powder. Place each ball in a mini-foil or paper candy liner and refrigerate in an airtight container. Bring to room temperature just before serving.



Keep these on hand in your freezer during the holidays and you’ll always have a quick dessert for unexpected guests. They’re especially cute when served in foil or paper candy liners. If you prefer a nonalcoholic version you may use cold brewed coffee instead of the liqueur. Makes 16 servings. Follow this simple directions:


1 package Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 tablespoon coffee flavored liqueur
¼ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter or buttery spread at room temperature
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder


In a food processor, process the cookies and espresso powder until the cookies are very finely ground. You will have almost 2 cups of cookie crumbs. Add the liqueur and butter and process until the mixture forms a ball or clumps. Shape the mixture into a flat disk, wrap tightly, and chill 2 hours.
Compress a tablespoon of dough into a ball, roll in the cocoa, and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Chill 1 hour. Serve in foil or paper candy liners. Store, tightly covered, for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Follow the step by step directions carefully.Enjoy preparing this nice truffle recipes and Bon Apetit.
