Cat Cora’s Chocolate Pistachio Truffles 

Cat Cora’s Chocolate Pistachio Truffles 

INGREDIENTS
8 ounces 60 percent chocolate

½ cup heavy cream

For coating:  1 cup toasted and finely chopped pistachios

INSTRUCTIONS

Finely chop the chocolate — a serrated knife will do this quickly and efficiently. Transfer the chocolate to a medium bowl.

Microwave the cream on high in an oven-safe cup or bowl until hot but not boiling, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Alternatively, heat the cream over low heat in a small saucepan until steaming.

Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and set aside for 5 minutes. Whisk the cream and chocolate together until smooth and shiny.

Pour the ganache into a shallow pan or baking dish, such as an 8- by 8-inch baking dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Use a tablespoon to portion the ganache into 1-ounce portions (about 2 tablespoons each). Roll the balls between gloved hands until smooth and place on a plate. Refrigerate for a few minutes while preparing the coatings.
For best results, pour the coatings into small dishes or bowls. Dip and roll the truffles in the coatings. These truffles keep best in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving.

Budino in Italian means pudding but this is more like a molten cake, moist and almost gooey in the middle when served warm from the oven. I like to serve the budino with a scoop of homemade Banana Chocolate-Chunk Ice Cream (in my cookbook, Cooking From the Hip), but it's also great with creme anglaise and fresh raspberries or strawberries.
