Hot Cocoa Truffle Balls
Print recipe here
2 C (1 12 ounce package) chocolate chips (I prefer the high % cocoa chips)
1 C organic heavy whipping cream
1 TB organic powdered sugar (or any sugar)
½ tsp Vietnamese Cinnamon
dash or pinch of ground nutmeg
⅛ tsp celtic sea salt
2. Place back into microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir until mixture is fully combined and very smooth and silky. When you first start stirring, after the first minute or so, you’ll wonder if this mixture will ever come together. Stir in your cinnamon and nutmeg.
4. Scoop out a scant ¼ cup spoonfuls of the mixture and place them on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator and let the mounds harden for 15 minutes. (Or in my case, stick them outside....)
Make the Truffle Hot Cocoa:
1. Pour 1 ½ cups of whole milk into a microwave-safe mug. Place one unwrapped Hot Cocoa Truffle Ball into the milk. Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir well until the chocolate is combined with the milk. Serve piping hot covered in your choice of whip cream, marshmallows, cinnamon, nutmeg (Ahem- Kahlua) and stir with a candy cane or cinnamon stick!
Wonderful variations ahead, let your imagination go wild and create your own favorite melted mug of naughtiness!
