Chocolate Truffles With Truffle Scent
- 4 pounds semi-sweet chocolate
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 cups heavy cream
- 2 cups melted chocolate (1 pound chocolate + ½ cup heavy cream)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh truffle
- 3 tablespoons truffle oil
- 2 cups cocoa powder
In a saucepan, mix together heavy cream, honey and shaved truffles. Bring to a boil, set aside to steep for 15 minutes.
Melt the chocolate into the cream, whisking vigorously. Add the truffle oil, mix well. Place the chocolate in the refrigerator until firm.
Using a melon baller, scoop out the chocolate and roll into the melted chocolate (chocolate should be at room temperature, otherwise the chocolate balls will melt). Set aside until the chocolate hardens, then roll the truffles in the cocoa powder.
