Grapes and chocolate are for sure favorites of mine. Together like this, they are divine.
Last summer, my super fabulous friend Debi made these for us when we stayed with her and her family in Chicago. These are so good and easy to make, you must give it a try.
You can use green or red grapes, make sure they’re really fresh, plump and crisp. Remove them from the stems. Wash and dry them well, then refrigerate for a couple of hours.
1-1/2 pounds of grapes
1/2 pound good dark chocolate, chopped up for melting, use a good chocolate, the taste and quality of these truffles are dependent on the quality of chocolate you start with
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
chop the chocolate for melting in a double boiler or ……
use a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water.
pour the melted chocolate over the cold grapes and……
mix really fast. The chocolate will start to harden right away, so don’t dilly dally. Make sure all the grapes get covered with chocolate, keep them separated so they don’t stick together. Toss them on to a baking sheet and dust them with the cocoa powder with a small strainer.
Cover baking sheet and chill for a couple of hours to set chocolate.
Enjoy ! They are so good !
