Servings: 20 -24
- 2 1/4 cups dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon raspberry flavoring
- 1/4 cup raspberry preserves or jam melted
- 20-24 raspberries
Optional for rolling
- cocoa powder or chocolate sprinkles
In a microwave-safe mixing bowl add chocolate chips & heavy cream. Heat in the microwave until the cream is very hot. I heat in 1-minute increments and check-in between (do not stir). It takes between 3-5 minutes.
Once hot stir until the chocolate and cream are smooth and well combined. Add raspberry flavoring & preserves and stir until well-combined.
Pour chocolate into a 9x13 pan. Cover with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
Remove from the refrigerator.
Using a cookie dough scooper, fill half of the scooper with chocolate - add a raspberry in the center and the fill the remaining of the scooper with chocolate.
Place truffle on a plate lined with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining chocolate and raspberries.
Chill in the refrigerator for 1-hour if the truffles have softened. If they are still chilled, quickly roll each one between the palms of your hands. Coat with unsweetened cocoa powder or sprinkles.
Place back in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
