{Chocolate Truffles}

Prep time: 15 min

Cooking time: 5 min (plus chilling time)

Yield: 24 truffles


  • 250 g dark chocolate (55%-70% cocoa), chopped
  • 200 ml heavy cream
  • 50 g butter
  • pinch of salt
  • cocoa powder for coating


  1. In a small saucepan heat the heavy cream and salt. Add chopped chocolate, and allow to stand for a few minutes then stir until smooth. Add butter, and stir again
  2. Allow to cool, then place in the refrigerator for about two hours. Remove and with a teaspoon roll out balls of the ganache. Roll in your hands quickly with cocoa powder, and place until ready to serve
  3. If you want to decorate them using a stamp, place both the truffles and the stamp in the freezer for about one hour. Press the stamp to imprint each truffle (if sticks, use some more cocoa powder to coat the truffles and dust the stamp as well)
  4. You might also use chocolate molds to shape your truffles. Just distribute the chocolate cream on the mold of your choice, and freeze until set. Unmold, and coat with cocoa powder
  5. Keep the truffles in the fridge until ready to serve
