Truffles! I don't really know what to say about these but they are easy to make and a nice looking gift. Keep these little things in the fridge. Roll them either in cocoa powder, crushed nuts, chopped dried cranberries, sprinkles, coconut or anything else.
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons grand marnier
6 oz german sweet chocolate
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
cocoa powder (or whatever you've chosen to roll the truffles in)
In a pan, boil cream until it is reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Add grand marnier and chocolate. Lower the heat and melt chocolate. Add butter, stir until melted and mixture is smooth. Pour into a shallow bowl and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Scoop out with a spoon, shape and roll in toppings.
