Truffles or as I like to call them, chocolate popcorns of amazing.

March 19, 2012

A little while back I bought a box of chocolate almond truffles from Woolies. They were flipping delicious and also finished in about 6 minutes, they would of been gone sooner, but I had to breath in-between bites and talk to my dad on the phone, which slowed the process down quite a bit.

After they were gone, I thought that I would attempt to make my own instead of going and buying a new box. I looked up a recipe in one of my many books and got to work. Unfortunately it is quite a messy process, but worth it in the end. They came out pretty cool and it’s quite a nice feeling knowing you made your very own chocolate truffles.

So if you are feeling like getting your hands cocoa-ed up, here is the recipe. Enjoy.

Ingredients:

°250g chocolate °55g butter °2/3 cup of cream °cocoa for tossing –  I never said these were ‘good’ for you.

1. Gently heat the chocolate, butter and cream in a saucepan until smooth.

2. Cool in the refrigerator. I stuck them in the freezer for a good while, till the mixture was quite firm – made them easier to work with.

3. Shape them into small balls and then toss in cocoa powder. I think I’m going to try buy a melon scooper, it’ll definitely make life easier.

    I’m scared that if I make these once, I won’t be able to stop myself from making them way too often 🙂
