Chocolate Chai Truffles
Chocolate Chai Truffles
In “I Love Lucy”, Lucy and Ethel worked in a chocolate factory eating almost as many chocolates as they worked on. Now it’s time for you to roll and dip your way through a tasty blend of sweet chocolate and your favorite David Rio Chai.
Chocolate Chai Truffles
2/3 cup heavy cream
2 1/3 cup (14 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup David Rio Chai

For coating:
1 1/2 cups sweetened semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder, preferably Dutch process

1. In a medium saucepan, heat cream on low heat until small bubbles appear around the edges. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
2. Place chocolate chips and chai in a medium bowl. Pour in the hot cream and let stand for one minute. Whisk gently until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Transfer to a 7 x 11 inch baking pan and let stand at cool room temperature until firm, at least four hours. The mixture can also be chilled in the refrigerator until it is just firm enough to roll into balls, about an hour.
3. Line a baking sheer with wax or parchment paper. Using a mini ice cream scoop, melon baller, or spoon, portion out chocolate and place on paper. Roll between your palms to form 1-inch round balls. Freeze the balls until completely firm.
4. Meanwhile, prepare the coating. In the top part of a double boiler over very hot, but not simmering water, melt the chocolate chips and oil, stirring occasionally until smooth.
5. It is best to have a friend coat the truffles as one person's hands will be covered in chocolate from dipping. Line another baking sheet with wax paper. Place the cocoa powder in a small, shallow dish. Place the ingredients in a line in front of you in the following order: the baking sheet with the chocolate balls, the melted chocolate, the dish of cocoa powder and the clean baking sheet.
6. Pick up a chocolate ball and place it in the palm of your hand. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate over the ball. Completely coat the ball of chocolate by lightly rolling between your palms. Transfer the dipped truffle to the cocoa and roll to coat completely, then transfer to the clean baking sheet. If the truffle seems to soft to place on the baking sheet, refrigerate the truffle in the dish of cocoa until it firms up.

**Instead of cocoa powder, you can also coat with finely chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or powdered sugar.
