Chocolate Truffles – Advent 9/24

Day 9/24 -Chocolate truffles

Chocolate Truffles

I always think home-made gifts are the nicest, where time allows. As a chocolate-lover, one of the best presents I can give or receive is home made truffles.

If you’re feeling flush, they’re best with proper minimum 70% cocoa ┬ábut if not, a 30p 100g bar of dark chocolate from any of the supermarkets will do just fine!


200g dark chocolate
100ml double cream


  1. Gently heat 100ml double cream in a non-stick saucepan
  2. Add the chocolate broken in to pieces and stir until melted
  3. Allow to cool completely (it may need to go in the fridge, depending on the room temperature)
  4. Scoop into balls – you can use a melon baller for this, but I find it easier to scoop a ball out with a teaspoon and roll with my hands
  5. Chill in the fridge overnight
  6. Serve in tiny cake cases and pretty boxes as Christmas gifts
