Old-Fashioned Dark Chocolate Truffles

Old-Fashioned Truffles

These special truffles are made with egg yolks, cream, butter, real chocolate and honey. The egg yolks help to give it a specially creamy mouth-feel that makes it all the more rich and decadent.

Optional suggestions for adding to the truffles:

  • Method:
    Gently heat the egg yolks with the cream whisked into them over a ban marie, add the butter and chocolate and heat gently, stirring. As the mixture begins to thicken stir constantly for about 4 minutes. When the mixture is glossy and thick remove from the heat. You can divide this basic mixture up and make a few different flavors of truffles.

    Chill, using a small spoon, scoop out a bit of the chocolate. Shape it into balls with your fingers and roll it around in dark cocoa powder.
