Chocolate Truffles

A big bar of Cadburys was lying in my fridge for a while and I thought of making something different with that. But WHAT? I was just flipping the pages of my diary and stumbled on this recipe. I always love recipes with chocolate due to my inherent craving for chocolates J
I had only heard about truffles and this is the first time I was attempting this recipe and was skeptical about how it is going to come out. But my effort didn’t go waste as these truffles came out perfectly well and tasted heavenly. This is so simple to make and that too with very minimal ingredients.
Chocolate truffles are said to be the queen of all French chocolates. They are delicate and melt in your mouth. I have coated these truffles with cocoa powder. You can also use icing sugar, coconut powder, nuts, etc.


Ingredients:
  1. Dark chocolate- 1/2kg
  2. Fresh cream-  250ml
  3. Melted butter- 75gms
  4. Cocoa powder- 250gms

Method:
  1. Put the chocolate pieces into a bowl and place it in a tray of boiling water (double boiler). Stir continuously.
  2. Boil the cream and pour it on the melted chocolate. Mix well and add melted butter. Stir till it is blended well.
  3. This mix is called GANACHE.
  4. Cover and place in refrigerator until it turns firm. It could take several hours or even overnight.
  5. Remove the truffle mixture from fridge and with hands or with a small spoon, shape the chocolate mixture into any desired shape and keep it in fridge  for 20-25 minutes to harden and set in their shapes.
  6. Roll the truffles in cocoa powder and place on a baking sheet.
  7. These truffles can be stored in cool room temperature in an air tight container.
