a happy ending. No matter what your Valentine’s Day plans are for Wednesday, finish things off with these Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Truffles. Gather your handful of ingredients and it’s as simple as melt, set, cut and dust.

 

G’s Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Truffles

Prep an 8″ loaf pan by buttering it lightly and lining with a piece of parchment leaving a couple of inches of overhang on the long sides.

Gather your ingredients:

20 oz. dark chocolate, chopped

1 cup heavy cream

a pinch of kosher salt

1/2 package Trader Joe’s Freeze Dried Raspberries ( 1.2 oz package) lightly crushed

1/3 cup Champagne or Prosecco

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted, for dusting finished truffles.

 

In a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water combine chocolate, cream and salt until smooth. Make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.

Remove from heat and stir in champagne until thoroughly incorporated and then mix in the freeze-dried raspberries.

Pour mixture into prepared pan and smooth top.

Refrigerate to set up at least 8 and up to 24 hours.

Remove truffle loaf from pan using parchment sling after loosening edges with a knife warmed in hot water, then dried.

Cut the loaf in half crosswise. Cut each half into sixteen pieces, re-heating and drying the knife as needed. Toss the individual rectangular truffles in the sifted cocoa powder to coat.

Yield: 32 two bite truffles

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
