Kahlua Truffles

Yield: 24 truffles

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter

cup heavy cream

cup Kahlua

12 ounces bittersweet chocolate

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Method:

Microwave butter and cream in a bowl on high for 1 minute, set aside.

In a 2 quart bowl, melt chocolate on medium for 3 minutes, or until smooth. Stir cream into chocolate mixture, add Kahlua and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Sift cocoa and sugar together on a sheet of wax paper. Using a small scoop or two teaspoons, form chocolate mixture into 1-inch balls. (You may need to roll with your hands to get the perfect shape.)

Roll in cocoa and place in fluted candy cups. Store in refrigerator.
