Chocolate Truffles

I make these regularly with the Mini Mes as they are so simple and cheap too! You only need two ingredients and if you want to add a little flavour you can use flavoured chocolate instead - mint and orange are great!




Ingredients

250g chocolate (milk or dark)
120ml Double Cream
Chocolate gratings or cocoa powder

Method
  • Break up the chocolate and place it in a bowl.
  • Bring a pan of water to boil and place the bowl of chocolate on top to melt it.
  • Stir until the chocolate has melted completely, remove the bowl from above the saucepan and then mix in the double cream.
  • Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge for around an hour.
  • Remove the bowl and form balls with the mixture. Roll the balls in grated chocolate or cocoa powder.
  • Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to chill.
  • Scoff!

These also make a lovely gift idea when wrapped in some nice paper or placed in a tissue lined box.
