Ingredients

  • cup heavy cream

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

  • 1 ¾ cups Ghirardelli® 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

  • cup Ghirardelli Unsweetened Cocoa

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer. Add the butter and stir until melted. Add the chocolate chips. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and pour into a shallow bowl.

  2. Cool, cover, and refrigerate the mixture until firm, at least 2 hours.

  3. Using a melon baller or small spoon, roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in the cocoa or nuts. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Tips
