Chocolate Truffles (Microwave)

Makes 15


Recipe designed for preparation in microwave oven.





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



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.

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
