It doesn't get any simpler--or more delicious--than this. Dark chocolate and cream come together to form divine, melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate truffles. For best results, use good-quality dark chocolate. For easily printable instructions, please see the Dark Chocolate Truffles recipe. Begin by assembling your ingredients:
  • 9 ounces bittersweet chocolate (about 1.5 cups chopped)
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • Baking sheet lined with aluminum foil
  • Small saucepan
Note also that these candies, like most truffles, require an extensive chilling period, so be sure to leave enough time when making them.
