Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 35

1/2 Cup(s) Heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon(s) Light corn syrup
8 Ounce(s) Semisweet, bittersweet or
milk chocolate melted
=== COATING ===
12 Ounce(s) Semisweet or bittersweet
2 Cup(s) Alkalized, Dutch process
Cocoa Powder
Line a cookie sheet or jelly-roll pan with parchment or foil. To make
centers, combine cream, butter and corn syrup in a non-reactive pan
and bring to a simmer over low heat. Remove from heat and allow to
cool 5 minutes. Add cream mixture to chocolate and whisk smooth. Cool
center about 2 to 3 hours at room temperature, until it reaches about
80 degrees. Whip the mixture using an electric mixer on medium speed
fitted with the paddle then spoon mixture into a pastry bag fitted
with a 1/2-inch plain tube (Ateco #6 or #806). Pipe 3/4-inch balls
onto prepared pan. Chill the centers for at least an hour. To coat the
truffles, melt the chocolate and allow it to cool to 90 degrees. Coat
truffles, using your hand to cover truffles with chocolate, depositing
them into a pan of sifted cocoa. Roll finished truffles in a strainer
over waxed paper to remove excess cocoa. Lift truffles from strainer
and leave excess cocoa behind. (Sift cocoa through a fine strainer to
remove any bits of chocolate and it may be reused.) Storage: Place
truffles in a tin or plastic container with a tight-fitting cover and
keep at a cool room temperature for up to a week. This recipe yields
about 35 to 50 truffles, depending on size. Recipe Source: COOKING
