Enjoy the taste of chocolate and bourbon together in these easy to make creamy, smooth chocolate bourbon truffles! Only 3 ingredients needed!
Hey you. I have a special dessert buffet for us today. It involves some chocolate and some bourbon. Which makes this hubs & # 39; new favorite dessert! And as he would refer to it, it is a true Texas dessert as it has bourbon in it.
Boy has it been a long week already! This marks our third full week back to school, back to football, back to wild and crazy weeks in the House of Yumm. Now with our at least three year old daughter joining the ranks of soccer players in the house, she is now bringing us a total of three players! (all on separate teams) that you can imagine for interesting, time-consuming weekends and weekdays with pure chaos.
All in all, to make sure the little bubba man still gets a nap! Are you tired yet? I'm sure …
So as the end of the week approaches (counting Wednesday ??), I have been thinking silently to myself, there is nothing more that I would like than having a nice cocktail while sitting on the couch watching a movie and eat something delicious and sweet. My wishes are pretty simple.
This is where these Chocolate Bourbon truffles come in!
There's just something about chocolate truffles and bourbon that just screams elegance, just like a fine restaurant dessert mixed with a bit of spicy tonk fun!
At this point, remember: we live in Texas. If there are two things Texans love, it's their BBQ and their whiskey. When it comes to whiskey, my husband's motto is the opposite of "less is more" rather his whiskey motto is "Pour it like you own the place!"
I made these truffles a couple of times and I will give you the "safe" amount of bourbon to pour into the truffles. But if you feel a bit more Texan, feel free to double the amount and you will certainly have a strong bourbon taste to enjoy.
These chocolate bourbon truffles are easy to make and follow the same method as the Peppermint truffles that I shared with you last year.
I would like to recommend using good ingredients, again, we basically just come to enjoy the chocolate and bourbon, so get good ones!
These little chocolate bourbon truffles are a perfect treat after a long day, just remember .. Eat responsibly 🙂
Need some more truffle inspiration ?!
- 8 ounces of semi sweet chocolate
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 1 ounce bourbon
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- chocolate sprinkles
Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heat proof bowl.
Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan until it begins to simmer. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for one minute, do not bubble the cream, then pour it over the chopped chocolate and let it sit for approx. 2-3 minutes.
Stir the chocolate slowly until all the chocolate has melted and it is a nice creamy smooth texture. If there are still bits of non-melted chocolate that make the mixture lumpy, place the mixture in the microwave for 5 second intervals until fully melted. Do not mix the overheating.
Pour the bourbon into the chocolate and stir until blended.
Cover the bowl with the ganache mixture and place in the refrigerator for cooling. Let it cool for at least 2 hours or until firm. Can be refrigerated overnight.
Once the ganache is chilled and firm, remove it from the refrigerator. Let it heat for about 5 minutes before spilling it out. Use a melon baler, or cookie scoop, or a spoonful of spoon out ganache and roll for balls that are about an inch in diameter. Place these on a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper.
Once all the ganache is rolled into balls, you can roll into any optional upstairs, such as sprinkles or unsweetened cocoa powder.
Place the cookie sheet with the truffles in the refrigerator to cool for at least 20-30 minutes, this allows them to stick to serving. Serve immediately, or store in refrigerator.
Total time is inclusive of cooling time.
