2 min read
Pop these homemade Christmas truffles in a pretty box if you want to give them as a gift. Kids will love giving them to family and friends.

Preparation Time: 30 Minutes

Cooking Time: 5 Minutes (+7 Hours Chilling)

Serves: 35

Ingredients:

  • 150g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 150g milk chocolate, chopped
  • 150ml double cream
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • Cocoa powder
  • Sprinkles
  • Lustre powder
  • Icing sugar
  • Chopped nuts
  • Flavourless nuts, for shaping

Method:

  1. Put the dark and milk chocolate in a bowl, then put the cream and butter in a pan and bring to a simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and stir until it melts. Leave to cool, then chill in the fridge for 7 hours.
  2. Put the coatings into separate bowls. To shape the truffles, lightly rub your hands with flavourless oil and roll teaspoons of the truffle mix between your palms – this can get messy!
  3. Gently roll the truffles in the bowl until evenly coated, then put in a box and chill. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for three days, or freeze for up to a month. Defrost in the fridge overnight.
