    Default Chocolate truffles

    Yummy...

    2/3 cup heavy cream
    1 12-ounce package (about 2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Either cocoa powder, coconut or powdered sugar your choice.


    Bring cream to boil in medium saucepan stirring non-stop. Remove from heat. Add chocolate; whisk until melted and smooth. Whisk in vanilla. Pour into medium bowl. Cover; chill until firm, about 3 hours or overnight if you like.
    Line baking sheet with waxed paper. Drop mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 45 minutes.
    Place cocoa, coconut or powdered sugar in a bowl. Roll truffles between hands into balls. Roll truffles in cocoa, coconut or powdered sugar. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

    Thanks for that quick and yummy recipe Mariesoleil. That will be perfect to make using some chocolate moulds I got at a garage sale.

    I have just printed it off. In our hot summer I love recipes like this that use the cook top not the oven.

    This is a really bad photo of the truffles I made

    I'm giving them out as christmas pressies along with little meringues and shortbread on a cute christmas plate. Maybe fudge as well. But that's quite time consuming and I'm running out of time!

    Much easier to boil the cream than to melt the chocolate.

    I'll try to post a pic Friday as my FIL currently has my camera.
