“National Bittersweet Chocolate Day”

Do you have a favorite recipe using this decadent chocolate?  Post it on Facebook if you do!

chocolate, heavy cream

My favorite is so easy and goes like this:

8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

½ cup heavy cream

Assorted coatings

Directions:

  1. Place chocolate in a medium bowl. Bring cream to boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; pour over chocolate. Let sit 2 to 3 minutes, then whisk until smooth. Refrigerate (uncovered) until somewhat firm, about 1 hour.
  2. Spoon mounds (2 level teaspoons each) of chocolate mixture onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Return to refrigerator 15 minutes.
  3. With your hands, roll mounds into balls. Place desired coatings in shallow bowls; roll balls in coatings, pressing in and covering completely. Return to baking sheet; chill until set, about 30 minutes.

I located this recipe on Martha Stewart’s webpage way back in 2012.

Not only are these treats decadent, but now that I think about it, being a long-time lover of modeling clay, the experience of rolling this mixture into ball shapes is quite therapeutic as the mixture is so soft and luxurious!  I must say that one does the trick to satisfy my chocolate lovers craving!
