       Title: Chocolate Truffles
  Categories: Chocolate, Candies
       Yield: 24 servings
  
            Butter for pan
      12 oz Bittersweet chocolate
            Cut into 1-inch pieces
     1/2 c  Heavy cream
       2 tb Superfine sugar
       2 tb Butter
       8 oz Toasted pecans or hazelnuts
            = coarsely chopped
     1/2 c  Unsweetened dark cocoa
            -powder
  
     Lightly butter an 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
     Combine chocolate, cream and sugar in a heavy medium
   saucepan. Melt together, over low heat, stirring constantly
   with a wooden spoon.
     When chocolate has melted, add butter and continue to
   stir over low heat until mixture has thickened slightly.
   This should take about 5 minutes.
     Add nuts and cook for 2 minutes longer. Spread hot
   mixture onto prepared baking pan and set in fridge for 15
   minutes or until cool but still pliable. When cool, break
   off pieces of chocolate and roll them in your hands forming
   rough 3/4-inch rounds (they should look rough and uneven to
   simulate real truffles).
      Roll them in cocoa powder and refrigerate until serving
   time. These make great gifts. Set them in little paper
   candy cups and place in a box.  Yield: about 2 dozen
