Makes: 50 chocolate hazelnut truffles

  • 350g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 120g butter
  • 120ml double cream
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 200g hazelnuts

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr25min 

  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or in a pan over barely simmering water. As soon as it has melted, remove from the heat and gradually add the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing thoroughly to form a lump free, glossy mixture.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the cream until stiff peaks form.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks until pale and creamy then gradually mix in the chocolate, a little at a time. Fold in the cream until well incorporated.
  4. Return the mixture to the heat and simmer for a few minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
  5. Spoon a little of the mixture into the holes of a chocolate mould. Even out the top with a knife and place a nut on top. Chill in the fridge until solid, about 2 hours, then pop out of the moulds and serve.
