Strawberry Truffles

8 oz Milk chocolate
1/2 c Unsalted butter (room temperature)
3 Egg yolks at room temperature
1/2 c Strawberry Preserves
2 c Pink colored sugar (for decoration)

Melt chocolate in double boiler over hot water just until melted. Remove from heat.

Vigorously beat butter and egg yolks into chocolate. Over hot water, Slowly bring to 160F and remove from heat immediately. (This will kill any bacteria which might be present in the egg yolks. If you know your egg yolks are safe, you may skip this step.)

Fold in strawberry preserves, mixing thoroughly. Chill until firm (1-3 hours).

Scrape spoon or melon-ball cutter across surface of mixture; quickly press with fingertips into 1-inch balls. Freeze well wrapped in plastic.

Suggested Decoration: Lightly dip truffles in pink colored sugar. Chill until firm. (plm note: May also dip truffles in confectioners coating which has been left white, or tinted pink. Sprinkle while still wet with the pink colored sugar. It is fun to bite into the pure white truffle and find the chocolate surprise inside.)

Notes: Everyone is crazy about strawberries and chocolate. This truffle combines both flavors for an anytime of the year strawberry feast.

Yield 42-45 Truffles
