You can roll them in any topping you desire. I rolled mine in cocoa and chocolate sprinkles just keep the chocolate theme going strong.

Ingredients
  • 8½ ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cocoa powder (for rolling)
  • ½ chocolate sprinkles (for rolling)
Instructions
  1. Chop the dark chocolate and melt with the cream in a glass or metal bowl placed over a pan of simmering water (not boiling). Make sure water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl.
  2. Stir chocolate until it's smooth and shiny. Pour melted chocolate into another bowl to cool a bit, then stir in balsamic vinegar. Cover with plastic wrap and place the bowl in the fridge for about an hour (or a couple of hours). Remove from fridge, and let the chocolate sit for 2 hours until it becomes soft enough to roll.
  3. You can use a teaspoon to help you form the balls. Just gently run the spoon over surface of chocolate then roll in your hands until a small ball forms, about the size of a gum ball. (You can make them as large or small as you like). Place the truffles on a lined cookie sheet covered in parchment.
  4. Roll the truffles in any topping you choose. Keep them stored in an air tight container. Place into small decorative paper cups when serving or gift giving for a special touch.

      Hi Rhonda!

      Oh my word! I totally forgot to write the word *cream* when I was talking about melting the chocolate on the stove! I’ve corrected the recipe. Thank you SO MUCH for bringing that to my attention!!

      Happy Holidays!
