Prep Time: 1hour30minutes
Total Time: 1hour30minutes
12ouncesdark or semi-sweet chocolate(chopped)
Place chopped chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. I use a large glass measuring bowl. Heat cream on stove or microwave, until hot but not boiling and pour over the chocolate. Stir until melted. If you still have chunks of chocolate after stirring, place in the microwave and stir after 30 second intervals until chocolate chunks have dissolved. Stir until smooth.
Add any flavorings or additions while chocolate is still warm.
Cover and refrigerate until firm but not too hard, 1-2 hours. Use a small ice-cream scoop or a tablespoon to form into balls. If the chocolate is too hard to scoop, let it sit at room temperature until manageable.
Roll balls into toppings and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
For flavorings, try 1 tablespoon of Bourbon, or 1 cup of chopped dried pineapple. Roll in toasted coconut, graham cracker crumbs, pecans, cocoa powder or powdered sugar, or top with nuts or bacon.
