CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

FOR 8 SERVINGS:

  • 300 g baking chocolate 
  • 1/2 cup water

Grate the chocolate, put it and 1/2 cup water in a pan, place the pan over moderate heat and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring with a spoon for 2 minutes. Remove the mixture from the heat and blend in the egg yolks. Put the pan back over moderate heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the yolks are thoroughly blended.

Shape it like a small truffle and coat each with chocolate sprinkles.
