  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 12 oz good quality dark chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp Bourbon
  • ¾ cup natural cocoa powder


  • Have an 8 x 8 brownie pan ready and a small baking pan lined with parchement paper. (the brownie pan is not lined)
  • Place the cocoa powder on a plate and set to the side.
  • Place the cream in a small pot and warm over a medium heat.
  • Warm the cream until you see bubbles appear around the edges of the pot.
  • Take the pot off the heat and add the chocolate chips.
  • Let the chocolate sit in the warm cream for two minutes to soften.
  • Using a spatula or whisk, begin to stir the mixture slowly until it is fully mixed and is shiny and smooth.
  • Add the Bourbon and mix well.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into your baking pan and place in the fridge to set for about 1 hour.
  • Once the chocolate has set but is still soft enough to scoop, use a spoon or tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop up chunks of the chocolate.
  • Working quickly roll the chocolate into balls and place into the cocoa powder.
  • Once you have about 6 in the cocoa powder roll them around and transfer to the other baking sheet pan.
  • Repeat the process until all of the chocolate mixture has been used.
  • Store in the fridge to fully set and enjoy.
