I am in v the middle of typical Christmas chaos and want to make a batch of Champagne truffles. I haven't tested enough recipes and don't have time to either, I want to use regular champagne , would anyone be willing to share with me their favourite recipe?
Many thanks, Sally.

There have been discussions of this issue on the eGullet forum, such as this one:  http://forums.egullet.org/topic/87881-chocolate-champagne/?hl=%2Bch...

The conclusion was that using champagne itself is rather difficult, and most people use marc de champagne, which according to one writer on that site is a very concentrated flavoring "gel" which pours and smells very strongly of wine.

But according to another link, Jacques Torres makes a champagne truffle, with the following description:  "Jacques' Champagne Truffles, filled with Champagne Taittinger, are a mouth-watering combination of milk chocolate, fresh cream and Taittinger Brut La Française champagne. These champagne truffles rise above the rest due to their inclusion of real champagne. These are one of the few champagne truffles to do so."
