Treat friends and family to a little bit of chocolate heaven with this delicious truffles recipe for an easy and thoughtful edible Christmas gift.
Prep time: 30 minutes (plus chilling time)
Cooking time: 10 minutes
100ml double cream
40g light muscovado sugar
300g Menier dark chocolate, roughly chopped
25g butter, softened & cubed
200g Menier milk chocolate
Menier cocoa powder, to dust
1. In a pan heat the cream, baileys and sugar over a gentle heat until it begins to boil. Allow to simmer for a minute and remove from the heat and cool for 2 minutes.
2. Place the dark chocolate and butter into a large heatproof bowl and pour over the cream & baileys mixture. After a couple of minutes stir well until smooth and glossy. Add a pinch of salt and allow to cool, cover and place in the fridge for two hours to set.
3. Remove from the fridge and using a teaspoon scoop out the truffles and then roll in your hand to form spheres. Chill the truffles whilst you melt the milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
4. Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate to coat, sprinkle with cocoa powder and place on greaseproof paper to set. Enjoy!
