Archive for the ‘Chocolate!’ Category

These are delicious and very diabetic friendly.  I allow Devyn to eat one for snack and then add in some healthy carbs to reach her 30 carb snack goal.  Just because she’s a diabetic, it doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy chocolate!  I needed help explaining the directions, so this is from DLife.  This recipe makes 45 servings.

8.5 Net Carbs per Serving

Ingredients

  • 20 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Directions

  1. Combine 8 ounces of the chocolate pieces and all the butter in a large bowl. Heat the cream in a saucepan over low heat until simmering.
  2. Take the cream off of the heat and spoon half into the bowl with the chocolate. Gently stir the mixture together as the chocolate begins to melt and becomes smooth.
  3. Slowly spoon the rest of the cream into the mixture and stir until the ganache is thick and shiny.
  4. Form the truffles: Spoon the ganache into a 2 inch deep baking dish and place in the freezer until it is the texture of fudge, about 30 minutes.
  5. Cover a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper.
  6. Form small balls from the ganache using a melon baller or small spoon, and place each ball on baking sheet.
  7. When baking sheet is full, move truffles into freezer and let solidify for 15 minutes. Take truffles out of freezer and roll between hands to form even, circular balls.
  8. To make the chocolate glaze: Place the truffles back in the freezer. Combine the rest of the chocolate in a heat-safe bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering water. Cook, stirring constantly until the chocolate is completely melted.
  9. Take chocolate off of heat and let rest, stirring frequently until the chocolate begins to slightly set at the edges of the bowl.
  10. Take the truffles from the freezer, and roll each truffle in the melted chocolate, coating all sides. Remove with a fork, letting extra chocolate drip off. Place finished truffles back on wax paper, cover with another sheet, and place in refrigerator for 5 more minutes to set.

Additional Information

You can dust finished truffles with powdered sugar or cocoa powder, or roll them in finely chopped nuts. Store truffles in an airtight container and keep chilled or at room temperature. Truffles will last about 2 weeks.
