Uh oh, I was shopping at Michael's

Ok, so it's not the smartest thing for someone to let me loose inside Michael's. I swear that I can find "something that I need" each and every time I'm in that store. Like this handy dandy 'chocolate melter thingy'. Oh yeah, it may sound funny now, but when Clif and the gang (those would be my next door neighbors) got a taste of these homemade truffles that I made... they were very happy that I got it.

White Truffles:
2 tbsp heavy cream
7 oz white chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp Irish cream liquor
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
6 oz bittersweet or dark chocolate

Place cream in 'handy dandy machine' until hot. Add white chocolate. Stir frequently until smooth. Whisk in vanilla and liquor. Cover and chill for 1 hour. Chocolate will be firm and easy to scoop.

Meanwhile, place bittersweet or dark chocolate, inside your 'handy dandy machine' and melt until smooth.

Using a cookie scooper, scoop out the chocolate and roll into balls on parchment paper. Drizzle dark chocolate over the top of the truffles and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve at room temperature. Enjoy!

I need these coupons because I always get stuck buying more stuff when I go to Michael's.
