Method

In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer. 

Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate and butter.

In a medium saucepan, bring an inch of water to a simmer. 

Set the small saucepan over the larger one over low heat. 

Stir mixture just until the chocolate has completely melted. 

Remove from heat. 

Pour the chocolate mixture into a shallow bowl. 

Cool, cover and refrigerate until firm, at least two hours.

Line a plate with waxed paper. 

Dip a melon baller or small cookie scoop into a cup of warm water and quickly scrape across the surface of the truffle mixture to form a 1-inch ball. 

Repeat with the remaining truffle mixture. 

Sprinkle the truffles with salt. 

Separate layers of truffles with waxed paper. 

Cover and refrigerate.
