Chocolate-Bourbon Truffles

Chocolate-Bourbon Truffles

The perfect hedonist dessert is one chocolate truffle, followed by one more. Though these look fancy, they’re actually quite simple to prepare.

  • Serves: 16 persons



  1. Step 1

    Set a stainless steel mixing bowl over a pan of boiling water to make a double boiler. Put chocolate, cream and salt in bowl and heat until chocolate is completely melted, about 15 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Add vanilla and bourbon and whisk thoroughly, until mixture is smooth and shiny. Pour into a pie plate or baking dish, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  3. Step 3

    Use a melon baller or soup spoon to make rough 1/2-ounce spheres. Roll between cocoa-dusted palms, then in crushed nuts. Refrigerate, but don’t serve them ice cold; remove from the refrigerator 10 minutes before serving.
