Recipe - Simple chocolate truffles
This recipe is ideal for using up the Brandy Cream at Christmas, or you can add a splash of alcohol to regular cream if you wish!

It's very simple indeed and yet so tasty!

  • 150ml thick cream
  • 100g dark cooking chocolate
  • Cocoa powder
  • Splash of alcohol if desired
Break the chocolate into pieces and melt in a microwave (stirring every half minute until it's soft and then every 15 seconds until runny - don't let it boil!) Then add the chocolate to the cream, stirring gently until it's all mixed in. If you wish, add a dash of brandy. Pop the bowl into the fridge to cool for one hour.

After the mixture has cooled, cover a worksurface with cocoa. Scoop the mixture into small pieces (about one dessert spoon) and round into a ball in your hand, then roll in the cocoa.

Makes about ten truffles, which taste as good as bought ones!

Store in the fridge, but remove a while before serving so they aren't too solid.
