A sure way to impress your guests at the end of a meal is to serve homemade truffles with your mignardises (assortment of small pastries served at the end on a meal). I must confess that I never tried to make my own. Looking at the dark chocolate truffles recipe on Tartelette, it does not seem to hard to make your own. I put it on my to do list for 2010.
Make sure to start with premium chocolate. Better ingredients create the best results.
