Grape Truffles

Ingredients:

1 – 1.5 pounds of large red grapes (we go for the larger round ones)

0.5 pound dark chocolate, chopped up for melting (or chips)

0.5 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

 

Instructions:

1. Separate grapes from their stems.

2. Wash and thoroughly towel dry the grapes, place in a bowl.

3. Melt the chocolate chips or chunks over a double boiler

4. Pour hot melted chocolate over all grapes, start stirring with a spatula while chocolate is hot, making sure all grapes are covered with chocolate.

5. While chocolate is still hot, slowly sprinkle in the cocoa powder, while stirring grapes with spatula. Do this evenly until each grape naturally separates from the other.

Enjoy! * Once they are separated and cooled feel free to decorate with sprinkles, drizzle with white chocolate or place in mini baking cups for some extra holiday cheer!
