Place chopped chocolate in a heated bowl. Pour herb-infused cream through a sieve onto chocolate, pressing herb solids with back of spoon to extract flavor. Discard solids. Cover bowl and allow chocolate to melt for several minutes.
Gently stir chocolate mixture just until incorporated. Cool at room temp for several hours until consistency is firm enough to scoop into a ball. Alternately, refrigerate mixture for about an hour then let come to cool room temp until it can be scooped.
