Raspberry Truffles

6 Comments

These are perfect for giving on Valentine’s Day or any special occasion.  My daughter and I are giving a bridal shower next month and I will be making these for the shower.  They really aren’t for children since there is liqueur in them and it doesn’t cook out, but they are decadent for adults.  Of course you can roll them in anything you like ~ I chose cocoa powder and confectioner’s sugar.

Raspberry Truffles

8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
6 tbsps unsalted butter
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
3 1/2 tbsps raspberry liqueur, such as Chambord or Frambois
Cocoa powder, confectioner’s sugar, finely chopped nut, coconut

In a double boiler (you can make your own with a bowl and a pan), melt choclate over simmering water.

Remove from heat and add jam a liqueur. Sitr well but do not over mix.

Refrigerate until firm. Shape into balls (use a melon baller or small cookie scoop) and roll in cocoa powder, confectioner’s sugar or whatever you choose.

Makes about 35-37 truffles depending on size.

They are better if kept in the refrigerator.
