Nicole Abcarius


1 lb chocolate (mix of milk and dark)
1/2 to 3/4 c whipping cream
1 Tsp vanilla
1/4 cup liquor of choice or icewine
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
Chocolate wafers for coating the truffles

In a double boiler type set-up, melt chocolate with whipping cream, stirring constantly. Add vanilla, liquor and butter.
When the mixture is uniform, transfer chocolate in the bowl to the refrigerator.
Chill chocolate until it is set - about 2 hours.
Form balls (about 1 tsp) - this will be messy!
Put the truffles back in the refrigerator to firm up.
Once firm, melt the chocolate wafers and dip the truffles in the chocolate coating, placing on wax paper to harden.
Chocolate covered truffles can be stored in the refrigerator or frozen for 1 to 2 months.
