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!

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

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 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

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

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

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.

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

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! It's 100% chocolate liquour.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Tada! Some are dusted in cocoa powder, the others dusted with coconut "flour". This (minus 1 I had to eat because I didn't have enough muffin cups) is from my halved recipe above, using 1 lindt bar.
