A decadent piece of chocolate is the perfect way to top off a meal and stay satisfied without overindulging. It’s also a nice gift to bring to friends. These truffles are made with dark chocolate rolled in wheat germ instead of cocoa for a nutty richer depth of flavor.

Yields 30-32 servings

8 ounces good quality bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces

1/2 cup heavy cream

3 tablespoons Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ (or Kretschmer Honey Crunch Wheat Germ)

1.) Line baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.

2.) Place chopped chocolate in medium bowl.

3.) Heat cream to gentle boil in small heavy-duty saucepan. Remove from heat. Add chocolate. Stir until mixture is smooth and chocolate is melted. Refrigerate 25 to 30 minutes or until mixture is thick enough to form into balls.

4.) Using very small ice cream scoop or melon baller, drop rounds of chocolate onto cookie sheet. Shape or roll into balls; coat with wheat germ. (Note: If chocolate becomes too soft to shape, return it to refrigerator until it is cold enough to manage.)

5.) Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Remove at least 15 minutes before serving to bring to room temperature.

Makes 30 to 32 truffles
