Chinese 5-Spice truffles

Ingredients

  • ½ teaspoon Chinese 5-Spice powder
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon whiskey

Coating

  • ⅔ cup confectioner’s sugar

Directions

  1. To make the truffle base, combine the chocolate and butter in a large bowl. Bring the whipping cream to a boil over medium heat, then remove from heat and pour directly over the chocolate and butter. Stir until both are thoroughly combined and melted, and a smooth consistency is reached.
  2. Combine the filling ingredients of your choice in a small bowl and stir until evenly mixed.
  3. Add filling ingredients to chocolate and pour the mixture into a container, making sure the mixture is poured at least three centimeters deep. Refrigerate for four hours.
  4. Using a melon baller, scoop out individual balls of chocolate. Shape by rolling between your palms if needed.
  5. Roll in the coating ingredient and store in a covered container.

*Note: The amount of cannabis butter specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabutter and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
