Chocolate Truffles
December 5 2008
6 ounces semisweet chocolate
3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons icing sugar
1 tablespoon rum
cup semisweet chocolate -- finely grated

Melt chocolate in the top half of a double boiler, set over boiling water. Beat in butter and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and add egg yolks one at a time, beating well between additions. Stir in rum. Turn into a bowl, and cover with waxed paper. Set aside overnight in a cool dry place. Do NOT chill. Shape into balls 1 inch in diameter and roll in grated chocolate.

Roll in grated nuts instead of grated chocolate. For example, walnuts or almonds.

Use brandy OR another alcohol based flavoring, such as vanilla extract, orange extract, or almond essence. Yields: 12
