This is a little messy to make but boy-o-boy are they good! If you dip them in melted chocolate to make a hard outside shell, you can compare them to the expensive store bought truffles. After completion, I put mine in individual small cupcake papers and put them in a small box for gift giving. They look so pretty when you open the box. This recipe is definitely a repeater for me!
2/3 cup of Land O Lakes Heavy Cream16 oz of high quality of bitter chocolate (70% or higher)2 tablespoons of unsalted butter (Land O Lakes)Heat ceam to a light boil. Remove and allow to cool and reheat to light boil again. Turn heat off, add the chocolate chips and butter. Stir in circular motion, do not beat or stir fast; no bubbles. After well blended allow to cool slightly in bowl. Mixture can then be put into a icing bag with whatever tip is wanted. Size of truffles is personal choice. Allow to cool some more and place in a bag with powdered sugar, cocoa, or other coating and shake to cover, place on a sheet of parchment paper in fridge to harden more. Can be inventive and add some extracts to mixture after blended, can separate and add different extracts as desired. Cinnamon gives a great taste to the chocoate. do NOT use oils. Can add cinnamon to coating also. Mixture can be dipped into a melting chcolate, simi sweet to add a mixture of flavors. If prefered, mixture can be placed into a bowl and allowed to cool for approx four hours and then rolled in coated hands of cocoa, powdered sugar or other coating to ball shape. Key ingridents is Land O Lakes cream and high quality chcolate. Tried other creams not as good, less creamy smooth taste.
These truffles are mouth-watering delicious and better than store-bought ones, especially if you use superior ingredients and coat them with a good chocolate such as Godiva. They were messy to make, but so worth the effort when they were hardened and ready to eat! I am about to make them again, and this time I am going to try using a small scoop to form the candies.
This is the recipe I made years ago. I was inside the Land o' Lakes box around Christmas about 20-some years ago. So glad it's on the web site now! It was delicious!
