  • 8 ounces of semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate (high quality, 62% cacao or higher), well chopped into small pieces
  • ½ cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ cup finely chopped Blue Diamond Roasted Almonds
  • Optional Coatings:
  • Cocoa powder
  • Finely Chopped Blue Diamond Roasted Almonds
  • Toasted Coconut
  1. In a small, heavy saucepan bring the heavy whipping cream to a simmer.
  2. Place the chocolate in a separate bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate, add the chopped almonds and vanilla, and allow to stand for a few minutes then stir until smooth.
  3. Set the mixture in the refrigerator to chill uncovered for 2-3 hours, or until almost completely solid.
  4. Once chilled and firm, prepare a small dish of cocoa powder, chopped almonds, and/or toasted coconut.
  5. Use a Tablespoon-sized scoop to scoop out small balls, then use your hands to gently but quickly roll/form the chocolate into balls.
  6. Roll balls into the coating.
  7. Enjoy truffles immediately or store in the refrigerator in a air tight container for up to one week.
