Dark Chocolate Whiskey Truffles
I love chocolate and I like the rich dark chocolate flavored with alcohol. I was looking for a good chocolate recipe that will satisfy my chocolate lover taste and found one recipe where the cook used Japanese sake as an alcohol additive, I decided to experiment again and instead of using sake, I used 18 year old Scotch Whiskey. And you know what? This chocolate came out so amazing, it is so rich with the whiskeys flavor that you will probably eat just one piece. This truffle will go very well with a glass of Champagne and will be a good addition to an adult’s New Year’s Party.
For 20 truffles you will need:
• 1 Hershey’s Special Dark 7 ounce chocolate bar
• 6 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
• 2 ounces of any Whiskey
• cocoa powder to dust your chocolates for decoration
Break your chocolate bar into small pieces. Heat the whipping cream in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil but not boiling.
Pour your hot cream over the chocolate and let it melt until chocolate gets runny and completely melted.
Mix the whiskey into the melted chocolate and place your chocolate into the refrigerator for at least 2.5 hours. Your chocolate has to get hard. Using a measuring spoon, scoop one tablespoon of chocolate and with the palm of your hands form a ball
then roll this ball into the cocoa powder
and place it on a plastic covered plate or baking sheet. Repeat it with the rest of the chocolate.
Refrigerate your truffles before you serve them.
Enjoy your party!
