makes: 20 servings (2 truffles each)
prep: 45 minutes   freeze: 2 hours   bake: 8 minutes   stand: 30 minutes

Ingredients : 
- 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- ½ cup fat-free half-and-half
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- ¾ cup whole cashews
- ¼ teaspoon coarse salt

Preparation Method :
1) Place chocolate in a medium bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan bring half-and-half just to boiling; pour over chocolate. Stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in maple syrup. Cover; freeze about 2 hours or until firm.

2) Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F. Place cashews on a shallow baking pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden, stirring once. Set aside 40 whole cashews. In a food processor combine the remaining cashews and the salt. Cover and process with several on/off turns until nuts are finely chopped. Transfer finely chopped nuts to a small bowl; set aside.

3) Divide chocolate mixture into 40 portions. Place a whole cashew in the center of one of the portions; shape into a ball. Roll ball in the chopped cashew mixture. Place on a baking sheet. Repeat to make 40 truffles total. Cover and chill until serving time. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. If desired, serve in small paper candy cups.
