Chocolate Recipes

Our town (Craig, Colorado) has an Art Walk/Taste of Chocolate every year near Valentine’s Day. This year it will be February 9th. My schedule won’t allow me to post every day, so I’m going to start chocolate recipes now, in the hopes of inspiring entries in the Taste of Chocolate.

Basic Truffle Recipe

2/3 cup heavy (whipping) cream
7 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
4 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup cocoa (not the drink mix)

Bring the cream to a boil in a heavy saucepan or double boiler. Remove from heat. Stir in the chocolate until melted and smooth. Add the butter and blend well. Chill for 1 to 2 hours. Using a cookie scoop, teaspoon, or melon baller, form into small balls. Roll in cocoa and refrigerate. Before serving, roll in more cocoa or decorative sprinkles.

Here are some chocolate recipes that I’ve pinned:
