Dark Chocolate Truffles.

I've recently fallen in love with chocolate truffles, and, because of this, I thought I'd share my recipe for dark chocolate truffles. These are very simple to make, and the method is split in half. Making it perfect for starting them, then finishing after a long winter's walk.

All you need is:
  • 280g Dark Chocolate (70% Cocoa),
  • 290ml Double Cream,
  • 50g Unsalted Butter,
  • 200g Milk Chocolate,
  • 200g White Chocolate,
  • 100g Icing Sugar.

Simply chop up the dark chocolate into small pieces, and put into a large mixing bowl.

Then, heat up the butter and cream together in a saucepan, until the butter melts, and the cream starts to bubble.

Pour the butter mixture over the dark chocolate, and stir until all smooth.

Cover, and chill for at least 4 hours.

After 4 hours, put put the milk and white chocolate into separate bowls, and melt them. Then pour the icing sugar into another bowl.

Cover your hands with a little sunflower oil, and start rolling the truffle mixture, immediately covering it with one of your toppings.

After finishing all of the truffles, put them back into the fridge for another 30 minutes+.

Then enjoy! I enjoy these truffles in the winter with a nice, hot glass of mulled wine!

This recipe typically makes around 30-40 truffles (depending on the size of them)
