instead of vanilla. My husband uses the Cuisine Cooking Lesson Kentucky Bourbon Truffles recipe from December, 1982.
The proportions are:
8 oz dark, sweet chocolate
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 Tbs bourbon
Dh mixes the chocolate and heavy cream to melt, removes from the heat and stirs with a spoon until completely smooth, lets the ganache cool to room temperature and then stirs in the bourbon. He generally leaves the mixture covered in the fridge for several days to "ripen." Last night, just about month-old truffles were perfectly flavored - last week they were more chocolaty.
Everyone calls them "Jeff's chocolate balls" and they are our number one most requested treat at the holidays. Colleen
