Trader Joe's Pound Plus 72% Dark Chocolate Bars

I always try to keep a 3-pack of the small Trader Joe's dark chocolate bars in my desk for when I simply must have chocolate. One strip of small squares usually does the trick.

But if you're making truffles, you need more than a 3-pack. You need the Pound Plus 72% dark. Ten of them. Musician/chocolatier and short-run Jeopardy champion Minstrel Boy shows you how to use this seemingly pedestrian bar to make enough confections to appease a pride of angry lions.
