My recent Cooking Class at Central Market was focused on all of the wonderful things you can do with chocolate. While I didn’t care for the Chocolate Marinara Sauce, it doesn't even sound good! I loved the Chocolate Chunk with Cherry Biscotti, the Chocolate Bark with Cranberries and Almonds, but my favorite was the Chocolate Truffles. So decadent!

Ingredients

  • 2 Bags of Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • OR
  • Fresh mint
  • Almond extract
  • 1 cup of Red Wine (cooked down)
  • Any of these ingredients can be used in place of the cinnamon and vanilla.

Prepare

  • Heat cream to simmer.
  • Add vanilla and cinnamon (or other flavoring).
  • Remove cream from heat.
  • Add chocolate to cream and stir.
  • Allow chocolate to set two hours in refrigerator.
  • Scoop out with a spoon and roll into balls with your hands. (This is the tricky - and messy - part!)
  • Chill overnight.
  • Roll into mixture of 3 tbsp cocoa powder with 1 tsp cinnamon.

These are so rich, you won't be tempted to eat them all. And perfect for a Mindful Eating Exercise. Enjoy!
