Here's a cute idea for Valentine's Day - Mini Red Velvet Truffle Cups. They're really easy to make - and no baking required. Just mix a few ingredients together, chill, then pipe into chocolate dessert cups. Don't be tempted to make these bigger than a bite or two. The mixture is very sweet.
Mini Red Velvet Truffle Cups
6 ounces high quality white chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup heavy cream or buttermilk
1 tablespoon cocoa powder, sifted
3 tablespoons dry red velvet cake mix, sifted
Place the white chocolate in a medium bowl.
Gently heat the butter and heavy cream in a saucepan until just before it reaches the boiling point; pour over white chocolate and stir until combined.
Add sifted cocoa powder and red velvet cake mix; stir until fully combined.
Cover surface with plastic wrap and chill until firm (several hours or overnight).
Place chilled mixture into a piping bag fitted with a round tip and pipe into mini chocolate dessert cups.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Filling can be made 24 hours in advance.
