Chocolate Truffles

SOO much easier than you think.

2 cups Chocolate Chips (dark, Milk, or white chocolate, whichever you prefer)
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
6 Tablespoons real butter (unsalted)

Heat cream in a sauce pan. Add butter. As soon as it is hot remove from the heat and stir in your chips to melt them. As soon as its all mixed pour it into a glass mixing bowl and refrigerate. Chill about two hours. Using a melon baller or 1 inch ice cream scooper, scoop balls out and place on foil. You can roll in crush nuts, cocoa or other toppings.

Tips: You can add a few drops of flavor if you choose. Such as raspberry extract, orange extract or with the white chocolate add some almond extract. Also if you use your sifter (for flour) you can sift the cocoa over the truffles and not have to handle them.
