Ingredients

  • 8 oz high quality chocolate (semi sweet to bittersweet)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For Topping the Truffles:

  • cocoa powder
  • chocolate jimmies
  • rainbow jimmies
  • shredded coconut
  • chopped nuts

Instructions

  • Chop up the chocolate and add it to a medium sized bowl.
  • Add the cream to a small sauce pan and heat it over medium low. Bring it to a simmer, making sure to stir, and scrape the sides to keep it from burning. *
  • Pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Add in the vanilla extract. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes.
  • Stir the mixture together until nice and creamy and the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Let the mixture cool at room temperature for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Place the mixture in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Scoop the chocolate out into a 2 teaspoon sized portion, and quickly roll it into a ball. **
  • Add the ball to your choice of toppings and roll it all around.
  • Place it on a lined baking sheet. Repeat with additional chocolate.
  • Place the pan in the fridge to chill for about 1 hour, or enjoy immediately.

Notes

*You can also microwave the heavy cream. Microwave in 30 second increments until hot.
**If the chocolate is too sticky to roll, first scoop it onto a baking tray lined with parchment and stick it back in the fridge for another 20 to 30 minutes. Then roll them into balls.
