Dungeoning Decadently: GGsGuy’s Chocolate Brandy Truffles

Power through your dailies, dungeons, raids, and even guild drama with these baddies.  Decadent and savory, these truffles will melt in your mouth and supercharge your gameplay, though I take no responsibility for any wipes due to you searching for that last bite you were saving.

These may take some time to prepare and a bit messy, but most of the time is spent in the ‘cooling’ stage.  Go for it!  It will be fun and definitely decadent.

GG’s Guy

18oz    high-end chocolate chips (go Ghirardelli)
2 cups heavy cream
2 Tbsp brandy (V.S.O.P. – GG’s fav)
1 tsp    vanilla extract
½ cup  cocoa powder
2 Tbsp powdered sugar


1.  Melt all the chocolate in a double boiler.

2.  Bring to a boil the cream, brandy, and vanilla

3.  Let cream mixture cool for 5 minutes and stir into melted chocolate.  Set in fridge for 1-2 hours.

4.  Blend cocoa and powdered sugar in a bowl and transfer to a large cake pan or baking dish.

5.  Put on your gloves and roll 1 teaspoon into a ball. Lay into cocoa. Do 6-10 at a time.

6.  GENTLY shake the balls to coat them with the cocoa and powdered sugar. Remove and set on a sheet pan lined with parchment.

7.  Repeat step 6 until done.

8.  Refrigerate truffles until firm, about an hour.

9.  Enjoy this delectable decadence en masse or savor each little bite. The choice is yours.
