    About this recipe: These easy, basic dark chocolate truffles are decadently divine and easy to make. Using a melon baller is what I find easiest. You can also dust your hands with cocoa powder when rolling to prevent sticking. Have fun!

    Ingredients
    Makes: 30 truffles

    • 5 tablespoons double cream
    • 100g unsalted butter, cubed
    • 300g dark chocolate, at least 70% cacao, chopped
    • 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

    Method
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr40min 

    1. Gently heat the cream in a saucepan until it comes to a simmer. Add the butter and stir. Once butter is melted, add the chopped chocolate. Stir until melted. Remove from heat and pour the mixture into a shallow dish.
    2. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, until firm.
    3. Roll the mixture into 2 to 3cm balls. For best results, use a melon baller, though a small teaspoon can also be used. Roll each ball in the cocoa powder.

    Tip

    You can store these truffles in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

    Ideas

    Instead of rolling the truffles in cocoa powder, you can roll them in finely chopped nuts, desiccated coconut, decorative sugar strands or hundreds and thousands.
