My Chocolate Truffles are very easy to make and are perfect for gift-giving.
Makes 24 truffles
Preparation 5 minutes
Cooking 5 – 10 minutes
1 cup (250ml) pouring cream
300g dark good quality chocolate, chopped or grated
2 tablespoons (40ml) liqueur e.g. Grand Marnier, Kahlua, Tia Maria or espresso coffee, warmed
cinnamon sugar or cocoa (optional)
- Place cream over medium heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until thick and bubbly and reduced by half. Remove from heat and mix with liqueur and chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted.
- Cool in refrigerator, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to pipe or roll. Place into piping bag with a star nozzle and squeeze into tiny patty cases and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar or cocoa powder.
- Alternatively, spread cinnamon sugar on a plate, drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture on top. Toss to coat then quickly roll into balls between your palms
Lyndey’s Note You could add ¼ teaspoon chilli powder or use chilli chocolate for a tdelightful twist.
