CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

2/3 cup heavy (or whipping) cream
12 ounces high-quality semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

In a medium saucepan, bring heavy cream to a simmer. Remove from heat. Add chocolate. Whisk until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl; refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Drop 24 portions by tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Shape into balls. Roll 12 of the balls in cocoa powder; place in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Roll the remaining 12 in confectioners’ sugar; place truffles in a container with a tight-fitting lid; refrigerate at least 1 hour. Makes 24 truffles.
