Cleveland - Are you looking for a treat to take to your next holiday party? Making your own holiday candy seems difficult, but it's really not. Let's Dish host Chris Koetke shows us how to make our own truffles.
Recipe for Holiday Truffles
Prep time: 20 minutes (plus several hours for cooling)
Cook time: 0 minutes
8 oz. chocolate, semisweet (best quality available)
1/2 cup heavy cream
5 Tablespoons cognac
24 sucker sticks
Cocoa powder and assorted sprinkles.
- Cut chocolate into small pieces, or grate. Place in a bowl.
- Bring cream to a boil. Pour over chocolate. Stir gently until the chocolate is well melted and the mixture is homogeneous. Add 2 Tablespoons cognac and stir briefly.
- Place ganache (chocolate mixture) in refrigerator until cold and noticeably more solid.
