Chocolate Truffles

A classic indulgence. These truffles will quickly become a favorite as they are so simple and fun to make. Perfect for the holidays because they look so elegant and pretty. Sure to dress up any table :)

1 cup 35% whipping cream
2 tbsp sugar
Pinch of salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

For coating:
1 cup cocoa
1 cup chopped walnut
1 cup shredded coconut

1. Combine cream, sugar and salt in a saucepan over low heat. When bubbles form around the edges of pan, turn off the heat. Don't boil. Let sit for a few minutes.
2. Stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Transfer chocolate mixture to a clean container, cover and refrigerate until firm (overnight works too!)
3. Sift cocoa, walnuts and the shredded coconut into three separate plates. Using cool hands (or a melon baller), shape chocolate mixture into small balls and roll in toppings. Tranfer to cupcake paper liners and refrigerate until firm.
Makes: 35 medium truffles
