Chocolate treats

What do you do with leftover chocolate frosting? Chocolate treats of course !! This was made out of the remaining frosting that I made for my Chocolate cake.


3oz bittersweet chocolate
4tbsp butter softened
3 tbsp confectioners sugar
1 tbsp marsala
15-20 whole pistachios
1/4 cup coconut powder

1.Melt the chocolate over a double boiler of barely simmering water.
2.Beat butter and sugar in a medium sized bowl at a medium speed until creamy.
3.Add the melted chocolate;mix until glossy and smooth.Set aside to cool.
4.Make mini chocolate balls with the chocolate-mix with 1 pistachio. Let it dry for 5-10 minutes.
5.Roll the chocolate over the coconut powder and places it on a baking paper.

6.Store it in a sealed container.

HINT: Work with dry hands.
