Haute Chocolate Recipe

Hot! Hot! HAUTE! Chocolate.

Ingredients:
12 oz Callebaut Dark Chocolate discs (found in the baking section)
1 cup heavy cream (we love Eberhard’s)
1/4 tsp salt
Cocoa powder for dusting
Directions:
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients. Melt in the microwave on the lowest setting, 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, just until melted. Cool for 10 minutes, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Scoop into 1” balls, roll in cocoa and wrap each in plastic wrap, so they don’t stick together. Then place in a zip lock bag and store chilled in the refrigerator.

Now use to make cocoa: Add two balls in a mug of milk and microwave until piping hot. Stir until smooth. Add whipped topping, dust with cocoa or top with marshmallows. Makes 12 servings.
