Valentine's Day Favorite Find #2
I LOVE chocolate! And what better way to show those you love by sharing a handmade chocolate treat with them. Hershey's website has wonderful recipes of all kinds. This one sounds delicious and seems pretty simple to make. You could make a handcrafted candy jar (see below) and fill it up with these!
Rich 'n Good Chocolate Truffles
1-2/3 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 packages (4 oz. each) HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bar, broken into pieces and chopped*
1-1/3 cups HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips or HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, chopped*
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1. Combine whipping cream and butter in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils; remove from heat. Stir in both chocolates until completely melted; continue stirring until mixture cools and thickens slightly. Stir in vanilla. Pour into shallow glass dish. Cover; refrigerate 4 to 6 hours or until firm.
2. To form truffles, with spoon, scoop mixture into 1-inch balls; roll in COATING. Cover; refrigerate until firm. Reroll before serving, if desired. Serve cold. About 4 dozen truffles.
* Food processor can be used for chopping chocolate.
COATING: Stir together 1/2 cup sifted HERSHEY'S Cocoa and 3 tablespoons sifted powdered sugar in small bowl.
