6 tbsp chilled butter
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup firmly packed powdered sugar
6 egg yolks
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Create a double boiler. Cut butter into chunks and place on top of boiler. Add the chips and then the powdered sugar. Let melt while you...
Beat the egg yolks in a small bowl with a whisk. Whisk until they are combined and fluffy.
Stir the chocolate until it's completely melted. It will be thick, almost like fudge. Add egg yolk mixture a little at at time and stir constantly. Stir in vanilla. Pull off boiler and put into the fridge for 3 hours.
Rolls balls out of the chocolate mixture and roll into powdered sugar, cocoa, coconut or even crushed candy canes.
Makes about 3 dozen.
