13 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Your choice of Coating Ingredient
Melt the chocolate with the milk only until smooth in a bain marie. Cooking any longer will burn the chocolate.
Add the butter and mix well.
Add the coffee.
Slowly add the egg yolks and mix well.
Add the cream. Stir well.
Place in a bowl and let cool overnight in the refrigerator.
Scoop the chocolate mixture into walnut size pieces and round them off by hand. Place back in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
To finish, coat the balls with your choice of ingredients. The above picture has half of the truffles dipped in chocolate to form a hard shell and the other half rolled in cocoa powder.
