First you will need to melt 8 ounces of both semisweet and bittersweet chocolate (get the good stuff... you're not masking the flavor with anything else.) You will also need to add 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk to the chocolate after it melts a bit. Do this in a double boiler on a lowish heat so you don't scald the chocolate. If you are as smart as Kristen and I, you will cut this recipe in half, get spoons, and eat the extra sweetened condensed milk. Don't judge. It's delicious.
|We used a bowl instead of two pots. You can use whatever is easiest.|
After it's chilled, but the chocolate is workable, roll the chocolate into balls. Then melt some milk chocolate and cover the truffles in that. Put on a baking sheet to dry.
Then choose some of your favorite toppings. We used sea salt, crystallized ginger, pecans, cocoa powder, and cayenne. If necessary, chop finely. Then sprinkle on top. Then... EAT.
We know what you're thinking, but we ARE twins. We promise.
