Raspberry Truffles

Ingredients:
• 12 oz mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1/4 cup unsalted butter
• 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
• 2 Tbsp Port
• 1 Tbsp raspberry preserves
• cocoa powder

Preparation:
Begin by melting the choclate chips and butter in a double boiler on low heat. While combing butter and chocolate, scald heavy cream. When butter and chocolate are fully combined, slowly add cream into mixture while continuously whisking. When all ingredients are mixed, place in bowl. Stir in Port and raspberry jam. When cool enough to touch, shape into small balls. Roll in cocoa powder, and place on tray. Store in refrigerator or, to keep longer, put in freezer.

Serves 4.
