INSTRUCTIONS

 

1). Heat the cream in the microwave in 30-second intervals until it’s hot to the touch.

 

2). Add the chocolate to a bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Let it rest for 30 seconds then stir until smooth.

 

3). If some chocolate is still solid, heat everything in 10-second intervals. Stir each time until completely smooth.

 

4). Stir in 1 teaspoon liquid flavors. Cover the refrigerate until the truffles are firm.

 

5). Prepare a plate of your coatings of choice. With a small ice cream scoop or a teaspoon, scoop a small ball of truffle into your hands. Roll into a ball, then roll the ball into the coating. Add to a serving platter. Repeat this process until all the chocolate is coated evenly.

 

6). Serve immediately or refrigerate for later!
