  • Yield: About 20
  • Cost Per Serving:$.21

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa, for coating

Preparation

Melt chocolate in cream in a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until smooth. Pour chocolate into a bowl and let cool at room temperature until thick enough to scoop with a spoon, 1 to 2 hours. (To speed process, refrigerate for 30 minutes, but do not let it get hard.)

Put cocoa in a bowl. Using a regular teaspoon, scoop about 1 Tbsp. cooled chocolate and roll between palms to form a 1-inch ball. Place ball in cocoa and roll until thoroughly coated. Repeat with remaining chocolate mixture.
