Recipe share. Chocolate truffles

Chocolate Truffles

1/4 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur

6 ounces sweet chocolate, broken up

4 tablespoons sweet butter, softened

Unsweetened cocoa

Boil cream in small heavy pan until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove from heat. Stir in liqueur and chocolate. Return to low heat. Stir until chocolate melts. Whisk in softened butter. When mixture is smooth, pour into a shallow bowl. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Scoop chocolate up with a teaspoon. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll the truffle balls in the unsweetened cocoa. Use a cool working area. Store truffles, covered, in the refrigerator. Let truffles stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.


If you don’t mind using liqueur, there are many types of spirits you can use in this recipe for different flavors. In place of the Grand Marnier, try kahlua, Framboise, or Amaretto liqueurs.

Makes 20 truffles.

Its so so important when you have a mental at
of services happens efficiently.

Consumers, the patients, need to advocate, and keep advocating. You and only you know what you need. No one else can tell you that. You know your body. You know how you feel and who can help you.

We are very lucky. We have a great team behind us. With a did diagnosis and with complex ptsd, things can be complicated. With these conditions, you do need a good team behind you in order to improve.

Our psychiatrist dr. Barry is wonderful. She is empathic, she is validating, she gets it, and gets us. She listens, that is the most important thing. She questions how things are for us, and then, she listens to the answers we give her.

She’s been our psychiatrist now for almost 5 years. Wow, has it been that long? It sure doesn’t feel that long. It seems like it was only yesterday when I was first introduced to her and it wasn’t under the best circumstances.

I was really ill. I had come into hospital in a bit of a crisis. I was very triggered. I remember telling her I didn’t know why I was triggered. She didn’t believe me. She said you must know, you are living with this condition daily. That was one of the most profound things she ever said to me.

I am living with did. I am the expert. Only I can know how I feel. Only I know my triggers.

I also have a wonderful therapist. I see her weekly and I’ve also been seeing her almost 5 years. She is truly a godsend. So amazing. She has saved us on many occasions and she has taught us much about healing and given us many tools to help us heal.

Its great that I have such a good
of services to help with my mental health. Without my team, psychiatrist, therapist, OT, community psychiatric nurse and social worker behind me, I am not sure I’d be where I am in my healing today.
I owe all of my thanks to them.
