Ingredients

8 ounces high-quality dark chocolate, melted

1 1/2 cups whipping cream, whipped

6 ounces high-quality dark chocolate, shaved or very finely chopped

Directions

  1. In a bowl, slowly pour the melted chocolate into the whipped cream, while gently folding to incorporate the chocolate, until the mixture is one homogenous color. Put the shaved chocolate in a shallow tray to get ready for dredging. Drop 1 tablespoon of the whipped cream-chocolate mixture into the shaved chocolate and coat in the chocolate shavings. Once it is lightly coated, gently roll between your hands to shape into a ball. Set aside and repeat until all of the truffles have been rolled. Refrigerate the chocolate truffles for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours before serving. The truffles can also be stored and served direct from the freezer for a surprising and decadent treat.
