|Truffles (left) and chocolate dipped pretzels.|
Not only are these the most amazingly delicious truffles in the history of the kitchen, they are also ridiculously simple to make. It uses one bowl, and there is no cooking, so they are great to make in the middle of summer when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen.
8 ounces chevre
8 ounces melted semi-sweet baker’s chocolate
½ cup powdered sugar
Melt the chocolate in a large mixing bowl in the microwave (or on the stove in a pot that will be large enough to add the rest of the ingredients). After chocolate is melted, add the chevre and sugar. Mix everything together and put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to firm up. Use a little food scooper to make truffle balls. You can either roll them in cocoa or dip them in melted chocolate. If you want to dip them in chocolate, it is easier if you put the little balls back in the refrigerator to firm up more before dipping. If you want to make them look really fancy you can dip them in one kind of chocolate and drizzle another type of chocolate on top.
