Spiced Chocolate Truffles

What’s better than a chocolate truffle? A spiced chocolate truffle!

If you’re a fan of a little heat and, of course, chocolate (who isn’t?!) then these truffles are for you. There are three varieties to choose from: cinnamon and chipotle, orange and cardamom and ginger. Or, why not try creating you very own flavour?

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the chopped bittersweet and semisweet chocolate. Evenly distribute the chopped chocolate mixture among 3 small bowls.

  • In one bowl, add cinnamon and chipotle powder. In the second bowl, add the orange zest and cardamom. In the third bowl, add fresh ginger and ground ginger.

  • In medium saucepan, combine the cream, milk, and confectioners’ sugar. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Evenly divide the hot cream mixture between the 3 bowls of chocolate and spices, whisking gently until chocolate is completely melted. Cover each bowl tightly with plastic wrap; set aside to cool, and then freeze until thoroughly chilled.

  • Line 3 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  • Using a 1-inch spring-loaded scoop, scoop chocolate mixture into hands, and roll into a ball. Transfer to prepared baking sheets, keeping each flavor separate.

  • Add the cocoa powder to a bowl. Gently, roll each of the balls into the cocoa powder to finish.

  • Devour!
