I was looking through my Pesach cookbook for some homemade dessert ideas so I dont have to spend a ton of money on something that tastes like dirt. I came across a truffles recipe that seems to be delicious and non passover tasting too! I came across Chocolate Truffles…yum right! Heres the recipe (you can make it Dairy or Pareve):
12 oz good quality semi sweet or bitter sweet chocolate
2/3 cup heavy cream or non dairy whipping cream
2 tablespoons Dutch cocoa powder
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
3 tablespoons finely chopped unsalted nuts…like pistachios, almonds or hazelnuts
Directions: Finely chop chocolate and put in med. bowl. pour cream in small heavy sauce pan. bring to rolling boil over med heat. pour cream over chocolate.gently stir to melt chocolate. do not whisk or stir too much. cover and chill about 2 hours.
Line baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. with melon baller or spoon, make small balls- dont need to be perfectly round yet, you will reroll them when you coat them in coating of you choice. Put in freezer for 20 mins.
set up 3 bowls each with some confectioners sugar, cocoa and nuts. roll balls in coating of your choice and reshape them into perfect balls. Store in air tight container in fridge. Can be make 10 days ahead!!!! makes about 30-36 truffles.
You can play around with the coatings, like using coconut or Kosher LPesach sprinkles.
This is super easy and my mouth is already water. I know Im going to make at least (if not more) 2 batches of them!
