Make it easy on yourself. Make homemade truffles by following this pictorial recipe. This truffles recipe is a version of the chocolate covered one above, except instead of dipping in melted semi-sweet chocolate we substituted cocoa powder. The initial kick of the powder is strong, but what a tasty combination with the soft semi-sweet underneath. Your friends and family won't believe you made these yourself.
Just follow the recipe above minus the extra semi-sweet chocolate in which to dip the truffles. The candy thermometer is vitally important so you don't overheat the ingredients and create the wrong texture. They are inexpensive and are easily found at the store amongst other kitchen untensils and equipment.
1. Melting and Combining Ingredients:Melt semisweet chocolate in double boiler over hot water. I like to place an individual burner next to the work area. It just makes it easier to have all the equipment, supplies and ingredients close together.
2. Heat Other Ingredients: Heat butter, creamer and vanilla in another saucepan to 125° F on a candy thermometer. Add to semisweet chocolate all at once, beating until smooth and creamy. This burner is perfect because it has two sides so I could melt the chocolate and heat the other ingredients at the same time.
This is the consistency you should have.
3. Chill in Refrigerator: Chill chocolate in refrigerator until nearly set but still pliable.
4. Cool Chocolate on Baking Pan: Next beat with mixer until light and fluffy on medium speed. Spread on 9 inch buttered pan until chocolate sets enough to roll into small balls.
5. Roll into Bowls and Cover with Cocoa Powder: Scrape small amount of chocolate with your hands and roll into balls. Drop in small bowl of cocoa powder and sprinkle some powder on top. Roll the balls around in bowl until covered. Shake off excess powder.
Finished Truffles: Voila! Done. Package truffles in decorative candy boxes or gift bags or just eat them yourself :) These truffles recipes are to die for. More to come later.
