Homemade candy is always healthier and tastier than a candy store. Chocolate truffles are hearty, nutritious and healthy.

It turns out that chocolate prevents the formation of blood clots, decreases LDL (“bad”) cholesterol oxidation, increases blood flow in arteries and the heart and may lower high blood pressure. Darker is better: phytochemicals, like flavonoids, contribute to pigment. More flavonoids means darker chocolate and potentially greater health benefits.  Dark chocolate may improve mood and pleasure by boosting serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain.

 

Preparation time:  2 hour 45 minutes.

The recipe is well suited for: holiday.

Servings: 30

 

Ingredients:

12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped;

1/2 cup heavy cream;

2 tablespoons unsalted butter;

2 tablespoons brandy or rum;

4 tablespoons cocoa powder.

 

Preparation:

Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in a large pot.

 

In another saucepan, bring the cream to a boil and pour into the chocolate. Leave on for 3 minutes to melted chocolate and then whisk until a smooth creamy mixture.

 

Stir the butter in the butter; add the brandy or rum and mix.

 

Cover chocolate with plastic wrap, leave to cool and refrigerate for about 2 hours.

 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a small scoop (2 teaspoons) or a melon baller, scoop out chocolate mixture,

 

roll into one inch balls, and place on prepared baking sheet. Continue with remaining chocolate mixture. Roll balls in high quality sweetened cocoa powder.

 

Refrigerate truffles until ready to serve.
