Whole Foods' Chocolate Chai Truffles
Makes about 3 dozen
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 TB butter
- 2 TB Chai concentrate (or substitute vanilla, liqueur or strong coffee)
- 1 bar (10 oz) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
- unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
Heat cream, butter and chai concentrate until almost boiling. Turn off heat and stir in chocolate pieces until completely melted. Cool for 1/2 hour. With a mixer, whisk on medium high speed until mixture thickens and turns lighter in color, about 10 minutes. It should stiffen to a whipped cream consistency. Refrigerate for several hours. Scoop up teaspoon-sizes balls and dust with cocoa powder. Dust your hands with cocoa powder and roll gently into balls. (Stop frequently to rinse, dry and re-powder your hands). Refrigerate until ready to serve.
