Simple DaVinci Truffles
 
Simple DaVinci Truffles

Ingredients

11 oz dark or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 oz (4 tablespoons) butter, diced
1/4 cup Da Vinci Gourmet syrup (sugarfree of course!)

Directions

Place all of the ingredients in a large, microwave proof bowl. Microwave on high one minute and stir well. If the mixture is not smooth, continue to microwave and stir in short burst until the truffle mixture is smooth and glossy. Chill for 2 hours or until the consistency of fudge and then roll into 1-inch balls. Roll truffles in desired decorations and store in the refrigerator for up to one month or at room temperature for 5 days.

Yield
18 1-inch truffles

This is from the DaVinci website - I added the "sugarfree" part! ;)

You could roll these in cocoa powder, crushed nuts, unsweetened coconut....

I haven't tried them yet but how could it be BAD?!

You could use any flavor of syrup that strikes your fancy - hazelnut, Peppermint Paddy, Kahlua, coconut, whatever!

If anybody tries this before I do please post results and pictures! :cool:

I love you.

I wonder how many carbs the semisweet chocolate ends up being.

Charski 03-04-2009 09:36 AM

Not sure, Lauren - I don't have any here right now to check.

I'd use dark or bittersweet myself.

These are definitely NOT for induction or the lower rungs of Atkins though! ;)

Melissa - I :heart: you too! ;)

I'd like to try this also but adjust all amounts to go with 1 Lindt 85% bar. I'll have to try and figure out the right amount of butter & syrup. This way I'd have better portion control :)

lcmiller461 03-05-2009 12:17 AM

This sounds awesome--and so simple! Can you get Lindt bars anywhere other than Netrition?

kathy76 03-05-2009 04:23 AM

You can get the Lindt bars at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens that are just a few that I can think of :)

kathy76 03-05-2009 04:24 AM

By the way I just checked & Netrition no longer carries the Lindt 85% :( Good thing it's available locally.

According to MasterCook bittersweet has 3.66 carbs/oz. which would equal 2.2 carbs/ea
Semisweet has 16.3 carbs/oz which would equal 10 carbs/ea. :eek:

lcmiller461 03-05-2009 06:18 AM

And it looks like the Lindt brand has around 9 per oz. That's just from skimming the internet. Can anyone verify that?

lindaokc 03-05-2009 06:35 AM

I :heart: you too.

This is a bit off topic, but I wanted to share my find at Trader Joe's yesterday and since were talking chocolate here...... They now have an 8 oz unsweetened Belgium chocolate bar for only $2.99! :clap: It's 100% chocolate liquour.

24Fan 03-05-2009 12:16 PM

Ooh Charkski! Those sound soo good :cool: I may have to try to make these, but I only have peppermint davinci's, how do you think that flavor would be? I'm dying to try this today. I'm gonna use the 72% ghard's chips I have in freezer

DEEDLYNN 03-05-2009 12:23 PM

yes....they are chilling in the fridge as we speak. That's exactly what I did with my lunch hour. :rofl:

I think they'd be good - call them Peppermint Patty truffles! :laugh: Post results please, those of you who try them, and hey pictures are always nice too! :cool:

WHOSE BIRTHDAY, HUH??? :birthday:

24Fan 03-05-2009 03:21 PM

Charski, I made'em! They taste great, rolled some in coconut, some in a mix of cocoa/ground almonds. But, my little guys don't look so pretty as I think I tried to roll them too quickly LOL . But they taste really good. Nice texture too.

debkeversole 03-05-2009 03:23 PM

wow!!:D:D

DEEDLYNN 03-05-2009 05:46 PM

OK...when they say chill a couple hours, they don't mean 4-6 hours. LOL. My mixture was hard as a rock. It's sitting on the counter right now and it's slowly getting to the point that I will be able to "roll" them out.

But the batter tasted good. :rofl:

Charski 03-05-2009 06:35 PM

WooHoo! I'm glad you ladies have given them a try.

Now how 'bout some PICTURES?! ;)

LOL Deedlynn! Mine were the opposite. I hurried'em, they were like almost liquid. I had to use two spoons to roll in coconut and cocoa LOL they did harden up nicely but mostly look like little logs of candy.

EyeDoc 12-07-2011 07:33 PM

Angeloco 02-01-2013 06:37 AM

Bump for Super Bowl party. Sounds great.

Kris T. 02-02-2013 12:28 PM

Kris T. 02-02-2013 07:00 PM

I know the above is an old post but I used:

1 lindt bar
2T butter roughly
1/8 c. syrup roughly

Microwaved for about 2 minutes
Chilled in fridge for about 30 min

Rolled into balls and dusted with cocoa

:shake:
