Baker's Chocolate Truffles Candy Recipe

I absolutely love chocolate truffles but usually avoid making them as I am a messy truffle maker. However, I came across a coupon and a recipe for Baker's Black Tie Truffles and decided to give truffle making another try. You can visit the Baker's Web Site for additional recipes ---> HERE

The recipe calls for 1 tub of Baker's Real White Dipping Chocolate, however...I couldn't find it at the grocery store so I got the milk chocolate.

Black Tie Truffles Recipe

1 pkg. (6 squares) Baker's Bittersweet Baking Chocolate
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 tub (7 ounces) Baker's Real White Dipping Chocolate (I substituted)

Microwave the chocolate squares, whipping cream and butter in a medium sized microwaveable safe bowl on the high power setting for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until chocolate has completely melted. Cover and freeze for 1 to 2 hours or until firm enough to handle. (It only took an hour for me)

Use 1 teaspoon to scoop chocolate mixture into 24 round balls, each about 1 inch in diameter, place them on wax paper covered baking sheet. (I lined my baking sheet with the Tupperware Nonstick Silicone Baking Mat). Freeze for 20 minutes.

Microwave dipping chocolate as directed on the package. Carefully dip each ball in chocolate, then return to baking sheet. Drizzle with any remaining chocolate or decorate with chocolate sprinkles. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

My tip: I inserted a toothpick into each ball and held that to dip them into the melted chocolate. Once they were firm, I just pulled the toothpick out.

These truffles were easy to make and very decadent! YUMMY!

I love chocolate too. I think it should be part of the food guide.
