HOLIDAY TRUFFLES WITH A BOOZY TWIST

Ingredients

  1. 10 oz bag of good quality dark chocolate chips
  2. 2 tb butter sliced into small pieces
  3. 0.5 cup + 1 tb heavy cream
  4. Sprinkles for topping
  5. 3 Tbsp liquor of your choice I made one batch each of Frangelico and Cointreau
  6. 1 Tbsp orange zest if using a citrus liquor such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier

Instructions

  • Place chocolate chips in the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment.
  • Combine cream & butter in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently until butter melts and mixture comes to a boil. Immediately pour over chocolate and let sit for 2 minutes until the chocolate has softened.
  • Whisk chocolate on low until it starts to melt, increasing speed as the chocolate melts further. When the chocolate is completely melted and fluffy, add zest ( if using) and liquor of your choice.
