I made this recipe because I found every other chocolate truffle recipe I\\\\\\\'ve ever made, too buttery and lacking that irresistable chocolatelyness (my new word of the day). This is a quick, super easy recipe that makes truffles TO DIE FOR!!! (and they\\\\\\\'re great for kids) Try it once. Love them for ever.
150g Dark Chocolate (1 bar)
200g Milk Chocolate (1 Ĺ bar)
300ml Double Cream (rough quantity)
Cocoa to dust
Line your tin with cling film.
Break up all the chocolate and put it into your bowl. Melt it in a microwave (remember to stir regularly) or in a pan of boiling water with a heatproof (glass) bowl on top (ensure the bowl does not touch the water).
Once the chocolate is melted, remove it from the heat and mix in the butter and cream. Once the butter has melted, pour the mix into your tin. Place into the freezer for 2/3 hours, until firm.
Remove the chocolate from the freezer, and with the help of the cling film, tip it onto a chopping board. Cut it into small cubes and toss them in cocoa.
Store in fridge.
These make a lovely Christmas present if you put them in a bag with a ribbon round the top.
