I know it’s not quite New Years Eve but having made this take on truffles, I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to post this (sad but true!).
Take a look at the photos first:
These are very easy truffles to make, simply heat some extra thick double cream, making sure it doesn’t boil, take the pan off the heat then add some cubes of dark chocolate, leave for 2-3 minutes then stir until all the chocolate has melted and you have a smooth chocolate cream. This should then be chilled for a couple of hours after which the mixture can be rolled into truffles and coated in cocoa powder or, as in this case, sugar sprinkles. I then used some mint and some orange matchmaker chocolates and stuck 1 in each truffle. Tomorrow night we will have some friends and neighbours round for a New Years Eve party and having been in the fridge for over 24 hours, these should have firmed up nicely!
These were great fun to make, I can’t wait to make the rest of the goodies for tomorrow evening.
