Amaro Chocolate Truffles

I love chocolate everything, and a truffle is a great way to get some serious chocolate flavor in a little bite. Amaro is an Italian liqueur that's often consumed as a digestivo, or an after-dinner drink to help soothe digestion. It has a great complex flavor that I think lends a lot of interesting notes to the truffles! I love the brand St. Agrestis, but any amaro liqueur will do. (You can check out our guide to Amaro here!)

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (finely chopped, such as 70-percent Guittard)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons amaro (such as St. Agrestis)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. This recipe originated on an episode of Giada Entertains. Episode: Earth Day Party.
  2. Place the finely chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. Add the heavy cream, amaro and salt to a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and warm until small bubbles appear around the outside. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, mix until completely melted and smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Place the cocoa powder in a shallow bowl.
  4. Using a 1 tablespoon-size scoop, scoop balls of the chocolate mixture into the palm of the hand and roll into a smooth ball. Roll in the cocoa powder and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Continue with the remaining truffle mixture.
