lazy sunday + recipe

since it is the day of the oscars i thought sharing my truffle recipe (adapted from the joy of chocolate cookbook) today was fitting.  decadent they are, much like the celebrations surrounding the oscar ceremony.  i've embellished them with edible gold stars for a glamorous touch.  happy lazy sunday.  xx, dana


1 2/3 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound semi-sweet chocolate (broken or chopped into small pieces)

put cream and butter into a saucepan; allow butter to melt over medium heat-stir constantly.  turn up heat allowing cream to just come to a boil.  turn off the heat, add the chocolate to the saucepan; stir well until melted and thickened.  cover with the pan lid and put in the refrigerator for 3 hours or more.  i've found it easy to scoop the truffle mixture with a small melon ball scooper.  roll to coat in cocoa powder.  keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
