  3. Place the white chocolate in a large stainless steel bowl and set over a saucepan of barely simmering water to melt. While the chocolate is melting, stir in the cream.

super easy and super yummy - be careful not to make the truffles too large. they test better if they are smaller. - 27 Sep 2010
