A chocolate truffles is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache centre coated in chocolate, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts, usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape.
If you really want to get fancy Chocolate Truffles , you could add espresso beans into the cream while you boil it. Just let it sit for a bit after it’s starts to bubble. Heat it again to extract the coffee goodness out of those beans, then strain while you pour over the chopped chocolate. Or you could try a few mint leaves in the cream.
- 1 pound high quality semi or bittersweet chocolate (depending on your tastes. Don’t skimp on this part. It’s the key to bliss.)
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Cocoa powder (preferably Dutch processed)
- For the more taste then put artificial taste to take a creamy smell
Method or Direction
1- Chop the chocolate into small chunks and place in a large bowl.
2- Heat the heavy cream till it begins to boil. Watch it carefully as it can boil over in the blink of an eye.
3- Pour the cream over the chopped chocolate and let it sit for about 1 minute.
4- Start stirring in the middle of the bowl with small circular movements and broaden the circles as the mixture starts to magically turn from speckled cream to homogenous chocolate heaven.
5- Once the cream and chocolate are fully incorporated, set the bowl aside and forget about it till firms up. Don’t touch it. Once firm, spoon some cocoa powder into a small bowl.
6- Make small balls (don’t have to be perfect) from the firm mixture using a melon baller or a mini-ice cream scoop, or just spoon it and quickly shape into a ball. Don’t handle it too much, it will melt. Place the balls into the cocoa powder and toss them about to give them a matte coating. Remove them to a plate and refrigerate till serving. That’s all there is to it. Congratulate yourself. You’ve made truffles.
