Love Truffles

Love TrufflesThis delightful chocolate concoction will win your heart—or that of the one you love. Serve this dessert as the pièce de résistance of a romantic dinner.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 large egg yolk
1 cup (6-ounces) NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, cream butter and egg yolk; set aside.
  2. Gently melt chocolate chips in a double boiler over low heat; stirring occasionally. Add a little bit of melted chocolate to egg yolk mixture, stir well. Transfer this mixture back into double boiler. Using a thermometer, cook until mixture reaches 160°F (70°C); stirring constantly. Remove from heat and transfer to a clean bowl; thoroughly mix in sugar. Add nuts and vanilla and stir until well-blended. Refrigerate until firm enough to hold a shape, about 2 hours.
  3. Shape into small 1 1/2 x 1/2-inch hearts. Press top side of hearts into cocoa. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
