For you Pre-12 step Program Chocoholics

Chili Chocolate Truffles

The chili really brings out the chocolate flavour! I use ancho chili's (a Mexican chili pepper) as they have a chocolate flavour but if you can't find them substitute cayenne. This makes about 18-20 smaller truffles.

10 ounces bttersweet chocolate
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon (or more... ) ground ancho chili

Garnish: shaved white chocolate, shaved dark choclate, good quality cocoa

Put softened butter and chopped chocolate in a bowl. Bring cream to a boil and immediately pour over chocolate & butter, stirring with spatula to blend and ensure all is melted and smooth. Stir in honey and chili. Cool, then refridgerate until set (about 4 hours)

Have ready a tray or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (or use a non-stick surface) and your small plates of shaved white choc, shaved dark choc and coca.

Using a melon baller or mini-icecream scoop, scoop out balls of the refridgerated mixture (if your scooped balls aren't forming well, use your hands to roll them into balls) and roll them in either the dark or the white (or both) or the cocoa (roll lightly in the cocoa though as it really gloms to the mixture then powders off onto everyones clothes!). Refridgerate until needed. They also freeze very well.
