Veronica’s been busy in the kitchen. Check out her fabulous truffles. I asked her for the recipe and this is what she gave me:
Veronica’s fabulous chocolate truffles
The truffles are by eying..
I started with Scharffenberger dark chocolate…(big bar- 9.7 ounce) (It was too dark for my liking so I added a small scharffen berger semi-sweet (3 ounce)… then I added 2 Tablespoons of butter…. swirled it about…. and added in about 1 cup of cream… maybe a little more… watching for the consistency I like and color… I used a whisk..
Refrigerated that until firm enough to work with… rolled into balls, refrigerated again… then I dipped in Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate darker than their usual… with 3 Tablespoons of butter… I do my own style of tempering the chocolate..
A lot of work and people here are eating them up! (Joey, Mike, Michele, Grace and Papa Joe) Mike dipped his in the caramel (I left some in a bowl)
