  • 1/2 Cup Heavy cream
  • 1/4 Cup Liquor of your choice
  • ***For white chocolate reduce cream to 1/4 Cup

  • Continue to stir until chocolate is smooth.
  • Stir in liquor or flavoring.

  • Using a small cookie scoop, scoop enough chocolate to make a 2 inch ball.
  • Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place back in fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Remove and roll into smooth balls. **(The heat from your hands will begin to melt the chocolate so be careful not to handle too long)
  • Embellish with crushed candies, sugars or mini marshmallows and place in a mini cupcake liner.
  • Insert a decorative paper straw for stirring.
  • Place finished truffles in fridge until ready to use.
  • Stir in hot milk or coffee and enjoy!
