 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  lb            Good chocolate
                         About 1/2 glass water
    3                    Egg yolks
    3      oz            Butter
    1 1/2  oz            Praline paste
   Slowly melt the chocolate in the water, bring to a gentle boil, remove from
   the fire, and add the yolks, beating with a spatula, then replace on a low
   fire to poach the eggs in the chocolate. Do not stop beating. Remove from
   the fire and add the butter and the praline paste. Let cool, beating from
   time to time (this cooling takes a rather long time). When the mixture
   begins to solidify, take some with a spoon, place it in some grated
   chocolate (prepared in advance), and shape to resemble real truffles. These
   truffles keep a week. To keep a longer time, substitute vegetable
   shortening for the butter.
