Now, truffles are a luxurious and delicious treat – but in reality, they are ridiculously easy to make – and it works out so much cheaper and better when you make them yourself at home compared to buying them.
I have already put up a different recipe of Amaretti, Pistachio & Rum Truffles which are super delicious and have a delightful crunch to them – but these ones? They only have FOUR ingredients, and two of those are types of chocolate!
I adore to have a little pot of truffles at home all of the time – they are the perfect bitesize treat and are so rich and full of flavour that its all you need to keep you going every now and again.
Also, these would make the PERFECT Valentines treat for somebody… hint hint! Just find an old jar, or small box and put a few in some tissue paper – it will look so cute and lovely!
This recipe makes roughly 30 truffles!
They will last for up to two weeks in an airtight container – if you haven’t already eaten them!
– 100g Dark Chocolate – Preferably 70% cocoa solids
– 100g Milk Chocolate
– 1x 227g Tub of Clotted Cream
– 1 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
1) Melt the chocolates together in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (bain-marie) or in the microwave.
2) Mix the tub of clotted cream into the chocolate mix and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or even over night.
3) Once chilled, use a melon baller or small scoop to create truffle balls or shapes and roll each of them in the sifted cocoa powder until completely covered
4) Chill in the fridge again for a few more hours as the mixture would have softened considerably after rolling and then serve or package cutely as a present!
Tips and Ideas
I find it easier to shape my truffles with a melon baller as I find them the perfect size truffles – if you don’t have one however you could try using two teaspoons to get the right amount – and then rolling them in your hands to create a ball shape.
P.s. These truffles are luxurious and so rich and flavourful you will want them all to yourself.
