12 oz semi-sweet chocolate (chopped)
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons Goldschlager
Edible gold leaf
1. Place the chocolate in a bowl. Bring the cream to a boil and pour over the chocolate, let sit for 1 minute and then whisk together. Add the Goldschlager. Cool and refrigerate until firm. Scoop and roll the truffles and refrigerate until firm.
2. Roll the truffles in tempered chocolate. Tear small-pieces of gold leaf and place on truffle.
Notes: For a stronger flavor subtract cream and add Goldschlager in its place. Flavored liqeurs can be added in place of the Goldschlager. However, Crème de Menthe can be very strong and so use caution when adding in. Taste test to make sure. For a firmer truffle use less cream.
