RECIPE: A favorite company dessert - Frozen Truffle Loaf
I've made this many times for company. Unfortunately I can't eat it because of the Kahlua but guests seem to love it. I think it came from Above & Beyond Parsley, but not sure. It MUST be made in advance.
FROZEN TRUFFLE LOAF (serves a LOT)
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick butter or margarine
4 egg yolks
3/4 cup milk
3 TBL Kahlua
1 TBL instant expresso powder
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup shaved or grated chocolate + more for garnish
Raspberry puree (to pool on the dessert plate)
Fresh raspberries to garnish
In a heavy saucepan over low heat, emlte chocolate & butter until smooth, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. In a 3 qt saucepan, whisk yolks. Add milk & simmer over low heat, stirring until mixture thickens & coats a spoon well, about 8 minutes. Do not let mixture curdle.
Stir in melted chocolate, liqueur & expresso powder. Cover mixture w/plastic wrap. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
Spray a loaf pan with vegetable spray & line w/plastic wrap. Whip cream. When chocolate mixture is cool, fold in 1/3 cup whipped cream to lighten it. Fold in remaining whipped cream & 1/2 cup grated chocolate until blended. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap & freeze overnight or until firm.
To serve, pour some raspberry sauce on a dessert plate. Place a slice of chocolate truffle on top & garnish with grated chocolate & fresh raspberries, if you have them.~~
