How to make it

  • Line the inside of 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with wax paper.
  • In top of double boiler over gently simmering water, melt
  • chocolate, stir occasionally. Remove from heat, stir until
  • smooth. Set aside.
  • (Alternatively, microwave chocolate in
  • medium glass or plastic bowl at medium power for 60
  • seconds, stirring between heatings well, until chocolate can be stirred smoothe.)
  • In small pan warm cream with the vanilla bean over low heat.
  • First place cream in a glass measuring cup, then split
  • vanilla bean, scrape it and add bean scrapings to cream.
  • Microwave full power 60 seconds. Remove from heat and
  • remove vanilla bean. Gradually stir in cream into the
  • melted chocolate until smooth. Add butter, cinnamon, cocoa
  • and salt. Stir until well mixed. Scrape mixture into
  • prepared pan and smooth top. Cover - refrigerate. (Truffles
  • can be prepared up to 3 days ahead.)
  • To unmold run a thin knife around edges. Cut chocolate
  • crosswise into 3/4 inch strips. DO NOT draw knife out by
  • pulling toward you, pull straight up after making cut,
  • holding down chocolate.
  • Cut into cubes, place on baking sheet lined with waxed
  • paper. (Can be frozen up to 1 week at this point.)
  • Place confectioners' sugar in a bag. Add frozen chocolate
  • cubes to bag in batches, shake. Place on small decorative
  • plate or sugar bowl. Serve with fresh coffee and pitcher of
