3 T Unsalted butter
1/2 lb bittersweet chocolate

semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 T Cognac or other brandy
3/4 lb bittersweet chocolate
-or-
semisweet chocolate, chopped

Bring whipping cream and unsalted butter to simmer
in heavy medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Add
1/2 pound bittersweet chocolate and stir until
melted. Mix in 2 tablespoons Cognac. Let stand
at room temperature until firm enough to mound
on spoon, about 3-1/2 hours. Line cookie sheet
with foil. Spoon truffle mixture by rounded
tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet, spacing
apart. Chill until firm, about 1 hour. Roll 1
truffle between palms of hands into ball. Place
on same sheet. Repeat with remaining truffles;
refrigerate. Melt 3/4 lb chocolate in top of
double boiler over simmering water, stirring
frequently until smooth. Remove from over water.
Grasp 1 truffle between thumb and index finger.
Dip into chocolate, coating completely. Shake
gently to remove excess chocolate. Place on
same sheet. Repeat dipping with remaining truffles.
Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Remove
truffles from foil. (Can be prepared 1 week ahead.
Refrigerate in airtight container.) Serve cold.
