This is an impressive dessert that is easy to make, but above all very gourmet since it combines dark chocolate, cream, and cocoa. There are only three ingredients needed for a sweet treat that will please a chocolate lover's taste buds.

The taste of chocolate truffles will mainly depend on the quality of the chocolate. I advise you to use good quality chocolate - 55% and 70% cocoa.


Storage of truffles:

The truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month and can be frozen for up to 2 months. They must be placed in the refrigerator overnight before eating and brought to room temperature before serving.

Prep Time: 15 min

Serves: 20

 

Ingredients
  • 250g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa - chopped

  • 20g butter

  • 100 ml double cream, (whipping/heavy cream)

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or rum essence

  • cocoa powder, to dust


 

Method

1. I​n a saucepan, place the chocolate finally chopped. Sit over a pan of simmering water (a bain marie) and allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally.

2. Heat cream and butter in a saucepan over medium - low heat, until it begins to gently simmer. Do not let it come to a boil! Pour over chocolate, and slowly stir with a wooden spoon until the ganache is completely smooth. Let cool at room temperature.


3. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight, until it is hard enough to roll into balls.


To Assemble


4. Put the cocoa powder into a plate. Measure out each truffle by the heaping teaspoonful and use your hands to roll the ganache into a ball. Work quickly so that your hands don't melt the chocolate too much.


5. Roll each ball in the cocoa powder for an even coating. Place the truffle onto a plate and place back into the fridge to chill until serving.


Enjoy!
