Swirl Wine Club’s Chocolate Truffles
The owner of Swirl Wine Bar, Dave Jarvis, gives us a little taste of the Taste of the Twin Cities Originals event.
- 2 lbs. Dark Chocolate
- 8 oz. Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 oz. Orange Liquor (Quantro)
- .5 oz. Vanilla
- Powdered sugar or cocoa powder (to coat)
In a pot, steep heavy whipping cream over medium heat. Once heated, add orange liquor. Chop dark chocolate and whisk in until incorporated. Set mixture in a metal bowl and chill for 1 hour. Once cooled, scoop out chocolate mixture into 2oz balls (tip: use a small ice cream scoop). Roll truffles in powdered sugar or cocoa powder and serve at room temperature.
**Suggested wine pairing: McWilliams “Jacks Blend”- South Australia
