Chocolate Truffles

1 2/3 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
8 oz chocolate for dipping (use white chocolate for berry/ light flavors)
1 lb powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract (or other extract i.e. strawberry, etc.) or desired
liqueur

Melt butter in whipping cream over low heat in saucepan, being
careful not to scorch. When butter has melted, Melt chocolate into
mixture - stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Pour into mixing
bowl. Sift one pound of powdered sugar into mixture. Mix at medium
speed. Add flavoring. Mix at high speed until mixture is light
and fluffy. Chill for two hours. Shape into balls, or pipe into
molds using frosting bag. Dip in chocolate, let cool.

If desired, you can add a bit of real fruit to the mix, use about
1/4 cup pureed berries (or zest of one citrus fruit, etc) not
forgetting to add flavoring to aid in the taste, and increase the
powdered sugar (1 -3 cups sifted in) until mixture is thick like
frosting.

For coconut truffles, I suggest using coconut liqueur (liqueur
always makes the candy taste creamier) - adding 1/4 tsp of lime
extract and rolling in coconut flakes before dipping.
