CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES IV
Very simple chocolate truffles
I found this recipe in the flight magazine for a trip from London
I think Vienna is probably the best place in the world for cakes and
Whatever you do, never go to Vienna if you are on a diet.
This is also the only recipe I have ever collected that is in cups
rather than grams!
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup powdered chocolate
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
Put all ingredients in a solid sauce-pan,
mix while bringing slowly to the boil.
After two minutes you will have a wonderful icing for cakes,
and a sauce for ice cream.
After six minutes (or a little longer if you want your truffles
harder) take sauce-pan off heat and allow the mixture to cool
At this point you can add dark rum or any other liqueur if you wish.
Cool in the refrigerator for about one hour.
Form into balls about the size of large marbles and roll them
in powdered chocolate. Cool to room temperature, or chill.
30 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooling, 1 hour forming balls.
measure the ingredients.
