Chocolate Truffles are a rich and elegant, bite-sized petit four made with a creamy mixture of chocolate, cream, and butter to which various flavorings are added (liqueurs, extracts, nuts, coffee, purees, spices, candied or dried fruits).


Chocolate Truffles:  Place the chopped chocolate in a medium sized heatproof bowl. Set aside. Heat the cream and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil.  Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for a minute or two. Stir with a rubber spatula until smooth. (If the chocolate doesn't melt completely, place in the microwave for about 20 seconds.) If desired, add the liqueur. Cover and place in the refrigerator until the truffle mixture is firm (this will take several hours or overnight).

Place your coatings for the truffles on a plate. Remove the truffle mixture from the refrigerator. With your hands, a small ice cream scoop, a melon baller, or a small spoon form the chocolate into round or mis-shaped bite-sized balls. Immediately roll the truffle in the coating and place on a parchment lined baking sheet or tray. Cover and place in the refrigerator until firm. Truffles can be refrigerated for a couple of weeks or else frozen for a couple of months. 
然后把想要加在巧克力表面的坚果啥的放在盘子里。从冰箱拿出先前放入的巧克力酱。现在我们需要借助一个小的冰激凌勺、一个挖球器或者一个小调羹把巧克力加工成圆形或者很小的一块一块。然后快速将做好的一小块一小块的巧克力在坚果盘里滚一下,再放进盘里。这样就大功告成啦!这些巧克力可以放上几周甚至几个月都没问题呢 。(所以不用担心吃不完会坏噢)
