Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Make these yummy chocolate truffles as a gift for someone on birthdays or Christmas, but we dare you not to eat them all yourself.

Serves: 12-16 truffles
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5-10 minutes



6 oz chocolate
1 oz butter
3½ oz double cream
1 oz caster sugar
1 tablespoon icing sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder



Break up the chocolate, chop very finely and put into mixing bowl with the butter.

Place the cream and sugar in a saucepan, bring just to the boil and remove from heat.

Pour the cream onto the chocolate and butter and beat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth and shiny. Freeze for a few hours, until firm enough to shape.

Mix the cocoa and icing sugar together, dust hands with mixture and roll mixture into truffle shapes.

Chill until serving, or keep in an air tight container for up to a week.
