Truff Luck

Christmas is around the corner, as I am sure you are well aware, and it can get expensive as you know. So, this year I am making it a little more personal and given edible gifts to family and friends. Truffles are on my hit list, because these little sweetmeat morsels go along way, believe it or not. 

Dark Chocolate Truffles

Prep time: 2h15min  Yield: 30-40 truffles

  • 225g dark chocolate (72%)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp ameretto
  • 1 tsp vanilla essense
  • cocoa powder
In a heavy based sauce pan, bring the cream to a simmer, ensuring not to burn. Add the amaretto and stir through. Add the chocolate and stir vigorously so that all the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Remove from the heat and allow to stand, before placing in the refrigerator for 2hrs.

Remove from the fridge, with a teaspoon roll out balls of the ganache. Roll in your hands quickly to make neater balls before coating in cocoa powder. 

Place on a tray, before gifting.
