I am feeling very proud of myself as I attempted making chocolate truffles with BBtoday and I must say upon taste testing (A LOT!…until the point of feeling slightly sick!) they are delicious. BBactually found the dark chocolate too much but he loved the cooking so actually didn’t care! Sometimes it is nice to make a treat for the Mummies and he kept saying ‘Mummy I am making you chocolates!’
What’s more is they are unbelievably easy to make. Just don’t wear white…there is LOTS of chocolate involved!
All you need is:
A plastic container (or two if you fancy alcoholic ones as suggested to me by @LittleLdnMusic - genius!)
150g of plain chocolate
150ml of Double cream
25g of butter
1. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of water (do not let the water touch the bowl). Add the butter and double cream and stir until melted and mixed together.
2. Take of the heat and stir until smooth – half the mixture and add a ‘gulp’ (technical term) of an alcoholic beverage to one half of the mixture and mix. I chose Baileys.
3. Pour you mixtures into the two plastic containers and put in the fridge for 3 hours.
4. Now for the messy bit. Take out the fridge and roll ball of chocolate mixture in your hands. Roll the balls in either the powder (Baileys ones) or sprinkles (plain ones) and place in an individual cake case.
Tip: keep your hand cold otherwise the chocolate will begin to melt!
They will keep for about two weeks but you can freeze them and defrost them to enjoy at a later date, but I cannot see ours lasting that long!
