Super Bowl Chocolate Guinness Pretzel Truffles
I know this Guinness Ad isn't for the Super Bowl or even for U.S. Football, but I love it!
CHOCOLATE GUINNESS PRETZEL TRUFFLES
3/4 cup Guinness
1 pound dark chocolate (65-75% cacao)
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Crushed salted pretzels
Melt chocolate in top of a double boiler or a saucepan over a saucepan with simmering water.
Stir in cream.
Slowly add Guinness, stirring to blend.
Cover and chill overnight.
Shape mixture into 3/4 inch balls using small scoop or melon baller or your hands- using about a tablespoon of ganache for each.
Roll in crushed Salted Pretzels (or crushed peanuts or beer nuts).
