Beer and Chocolate?

Weyerbacher Brewing Company makes craft beers that are incredible tasting.  But they not only offer you beer to drink, their web site has great recipes to make using their beers as well.  Serve a smorgasbord of their beers at your wedding bar and serve Heresy Truffles made with, what else? Heresy Beer. 

This easy recipe is the perfect addition to your sweet table or an excellent way to end your meal with a sweet treat.  The recipe is from Weyerbacher's web site and the real trick is NOT to drink the beer before you get it into the recipe AND NOT TO EAT the truffles before the wedding.

Heresy Truffles by Weyerbacher Brewing Company

3 oz 62% semi sweet chocolate

3 Tbsp Heavy cream

2 Tbsp Heresy

1 pinch Good quality sea salt (i.e. Fleur de Sel, Sicilian Sea Salt, or Maldon)

Good Quality Unsweetened Cocoa Powder


Add the chocolate, cream, Heresy, and sea salt to a melt bowl and slowly melt over a double boiler.

Once melted and smooth allow to cool in the refrigerator until it is set. At least an hour or so.

Once it is set you can form it into little balls, about a teaspoon each. They don’t need to be perfect. They are named truffles because they are supposed to resemble real truffles, as in the mushroom.

As you form them roll them in the cocoa powder and put in the refrigerator until about an hour before you serve them with a nice glass of Heresy.

See? Simple, easy AND DON'T EAT THEM ALL! I saw you sneak a taste! I warn you, these are like potato chips "I bet you can't eat just one."
