Beside the fact that they are very simple to make they are also very decorative and therefore perfect as a small hostess gift or similar. We normally make these truffles as a Christmas candy and we simple love them! However, they are super as a candy all year around. You can store them in the fridge and snack them when you are hungry for some delicious candy :-)
Preparation time: 3 hours
200 g (7 oz) dark chocolate
2 dl (4/5 cup) heavy cream
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Step 1: Heat up the heavy cream in a sauce pan and melt the chocolate in it.
Step 2: When the chocolate is completely melted; pour the mixture in a bowl and leave it in the fridge until it is solid but still a bit soft. This normally takes a couple of hours.
Step 3: When the chocolate/cream mixture is solidified use a tea spoon to form small balls. Roll the chocolate truffles in your palms until they are perfectly round. If the chocolate truffle is still a bit soft leave it in the fridge for some more time.
Step 4: Pour some cocoa powder on a plate and roll the truffles in it. Keep the truffles in the fridge until serving.
Tip: Try roll the chocolate truffles in something different than cocoa powder. We have tried rolling the truffles in chopped pistachio kernels, freeze dried raspberries or blackberries and chopped hazelnuts. However, it is basically only your imaginations that is the limit :-)
