A while ago, I received some phenomenal bourbon. I COULD drink the whole thing. I should NOT. I WILL not. Instead I made a LOT of truffles. A LOT…and here I am to share the recipe with you. It only seems fair. You share your time with me.

Four Roses Dark Chocolate Truffles

Four Roses Dark Chocolate Truffles


  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • zest 2 oranges (big strips, not the tiny zest)
  • 1lb good dark chocolate (finely chopped)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/3 cup Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon


  1. In small sauce pan, heat cream and orange zest to a high simmer. Keep an eye on it...cream likes to boil over. That's not fun.
  2. Immediately add cream and butter to chocolate and remove zest. Shake the bowl a little to settle the chocolate and allow to set for a minute or two. Now stir, stir, stir, until smooth and silky.
  3. Add the bourbon and stir until completely incorporated. Bring the truffle batter to room temperature then cover and refrigerate until firm.
  4. Scoop out a big grape sized portion of truffle and roll into a ball. (it's gonna be messy, but you'll never be happier to lick your hands)
  5. I rolled mine in cocoa powder to deepen the flavor even more,but feel free to go wild, roll in sprinkles, powdered sugar, finely chopped nuts...let your imagination GO!
