Sitting Down for Tea with You . . .

Let's be honest . . . this is my favorite part of the day.  Sitting down at a gorgeous table with wonderful food and the best company one can find!

Earl Grey Truffels
(my most favorite EVER)

2/3 c. whipping cream
2 T. butter, cut into pieces
1 t. light corn syrup
2 Earl Grey tea bags
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
Chocolate bark coating
Chocolate sprinkles

In small saucepan, bring cream, butter, and syrup to a boil.  Remove from heat and add tea bags.  Steep 5 minutes.  Remove tea bags and squeeze out excess into pan.

Add chopped chocolate, stirring until chocolate melts and is smooth.  Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.

Roll chocolate into balls by the teaspoonful.  Place in freezer to keep firm while preparing chocolate coating.

Melt chocolate coating in a double boiler.  Quickly dip balls in coating, place on waxed paper and shake chocolate sprinkles over the top.  Refrigerate until firm.  Store in refrigerator up to 1 week  or in a freezer for up to 1 month.   Makes 30 truffles.
