Chocolate Milk Stout Truffles

Makes: 6–7 golf ball–sized truffles

  • 8 oz (227 g) bittersweet (63 percent cacao) chocolate
  • ¼ cup (59 ml) cream
  • ¼ cup (59 ml) milk stout
  • ½ cup (118 ml) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup (118 ml) sugar

If you are using a bar of chocolate, chop it into small pieces. Place the chocolate pieces in a heatproof mixing bowl. Place 1 cup (237 ml) water in a small pan and bring it to a low simmer over low heat. Place the mixing bowl with chocolate on the pot (DIY double boiler).

Heat the cream in the microwave until it is hot to the touch but not boiling. With a spoon, mix the cream into the chocolate to help with the melting.
