Title: Bitter Chocolate Truffles
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Candies


1/2 c Unsalted butter; well
1 lg Egg; well beaten
3 oz Unsweetened chocolate;
-broken into 6 pieces
1 tb Strong coffee
About 1 pound confectioners
-sugar, sifted
1/2 c Heavy cream
1 tb Vanilla extract
1/2 c Chocolate threads or grated

In a mixing bowl, whisk the butter together with the egg until evenly
blended. In a double boiler over gently simmering water, combine the
chocolate and the coffee and melt, stirring occasionally.

In a large mixing bowl, place about 2 1/2 cups of the confectioners sugar.
Add the butter and egg mixture, the melted chocolate mixture, cream and
vanilla. Stir well and, if necessary, add more sugar to make the mixture
into a paste stiff enough to handle. Roll the paste quickly into little
balls, using about 2 heaping teaspoons for each one. Roll the balls in the
chocolate threads. Chill until firm, on a tray lined with parchment paper
in the refrigerator. If desired, layer the balls with parchment in an
airtight cookie tin and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
