DSC Member: Devin Plaut, Laughing Fox Chocolatier

Devin Plaut, a DSC member since May 2012, aspires to rule the chocolate business like Willy Wonka, the ultimate candy capitalist. And so, the founder of Laughing Fox Chocolate has decided to give away a Golden Ticket of his own for Valentine’s Day—his chocolate truffle recipe. Sure, it’s not his top-secret Paleo Chocolate Truffle, but it’s certainly better than getting this.

Devin Plaut’s Chocolate Truffles

1   cup dark chocolate chips

1   cup heavy cream

½  cup cocoa powder

DIRECTIONS Place chocolate chips in a large bowl and set aside. In a heavy bottomed pot, bring cream to a boil. When cream doubles in size, immediately remove from heat and pour directly over chocolate chips. Allow the cream and chocolate to sit for one minute. Begin stirring slowly, starting in the center and moving outward gradually, with a rubber spatula. Cover the ganache and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator. With a spoon, form the chilled chocolate mixture into balls and coat with cocoa powder.
