Chocolate Truffles

Love chocolate truffles but hate how expensive they are? You'll never need to buy them again with this recipe and they make greats gifts too! :)


For the truffles
300g of dark chocolate
300ml of double cream

For the topping/coating
Cocoa Powder
Icing Sugar
Crushed nuts
Edible Glitter
Melted Chocolate
Sugar Strands
anything that works and tickles your fancy :)

Heat the double cream in a sauce pan until almost boiling (DO NOT BOIL).
Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate
Keep stirring until chocolate has melted and you have a nice chocolate ganache
Pour into a glass bowl and pop into the fridge for about 3 hours to allow it to set.
3 hours later and you have something that could almost pass as chocolate spread!
Take a small portion and roll between your hands to make a ball.
Make them as big or small as you like.
Once you have rolled the whole mixture into balls, roll the balls in you desired topping/ coating.

I attempted to cover them in melted chocolate, with the idea that when it cooled they would have a crisp hard chocolate shell and a soft truffle centre. Nice idea, right? Didn't work out the best so I wont show you how I made them, but here is a peek at one of the very few that did turn out ok :)



They look so brilliantly perfect, you can sell them too :)

Mashallah you are amazing :)

Thanks, please share with friends and family :)

Yes deary; I did before you ask for it ^_^

Great post! A tip: Before coating them in melted chocolate try freezing them first so that they don't start to melt in the hot chocolate!

I was planning to do that next time :p
