Directions

  1. Combine semisweet chocolate, butter, and the 3 tablespoons whipping cream in a heavy, medium saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted, stirring constantly. Gradually stir about half of the hot mixture into the egg yolk, Return entire mixture to the saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in champagne or 3 tablespoons whipping cream. Transfer truffle mixture to a medium mixing bowl; chill about 1 hour or until mixture is completely cool and smooth, stirring occasionally.
  3. Beat cooled truffle mixture with an electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until color lightens and mixture is slightly fluffy. Chill about 30 minutes more or until mixture holds its shape. Scrape a small ice cream scoop, melon baller, or spoon across the surface of the cold truffle mixture, forming 1-inch balls. Place balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Refrigerate until very firm.
  4. Gently roll balls in unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted powdered sugar, or small white decorative candies until evenly coated, reshaping as necessary. If desired, drizzle with melted white chocolate. Serve in decorative foil candy cups, if desired. Makes 25 to 30 truffles.

From the Test Kitchen

Prepare truffles as directed and store tightly covered in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

To Present This As a Gift:

1. You will need a glue stick; heart-shape paper doily, slightly larger than the cookie cutter; bright red art paper; decorative-edge scissors; large, red, heart-shape cookie cutter; tape; and waxed paper.
