I’m a chocolate lover and now January is over you might be ready to indulge in a treat or two! This month’s video is a quick, simple and delicious recipe for creating my favourite Chocolate Truffles!
Firstly, you need to heat up some cream until it’s nearly boiling – I use whipping cream, but you can use double or heavy cream – then add some good quality chocolate, take it off the heat and give it a stir.
Then simply fill a piping bag with the ganache, pipe bite-sized pieces on to a plate and leave them to set.
Finally, coat the chocolate bites in cocoa powder and they’re ready to serve. Perfect!p>
150g whipping or heavy cream
300g of dark chocolate
150g of 70% cocoa powder
(Ideally good quality)
One part cream to two parts chocolate
Ideally you need to use Belgian couverture chocolate
Gently heat the cream into a heavy-bottomed pan
Stop when just about to boil
Take off the heat add the chopped chocolate
Allow to sit for 30 seconds then mix together to form a ganache
Place into a piping bag
Pipe bite size portions onto baking parchment or a non stick surface
Allow to set
Then coat in cocoa powder or a topping of your choice
