Chocolate Truffles (Microwave)

Makes 15

 

Recipe designed for preparation in microwave oven.

 

 

Ingredients

 

3 1/2 oz semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
2 tbsp ground almonds
1 tsp vanilla extract
Unsweetened chocolate powder

 

Directions

Break up the chocolate and put into a bowl with the butter. Melt, uncovered, on Defrost for 5 - 5 1/2 minutes. Mix in the confectioners’ sugar with a wooden spoon, then stir in the almonds and vanilla. Transfer to a shallow dish, cover and chill until firm but not hard. Roll into 15 balls, toss in cocoa powder and drop into candy cups.

TIP:
To melt chocolate evenly, break into small pieces and spread into an even layer in a round container labeled for use in the microwave. Outer areas will heat faster than those in the center, so place larger pieces toward the outer edges of the container.    » more
