CHOCOLATE GANACHE TRUFFLES


Some people are not keen on dessert, or sometimes there’s just not enough room left

after a heavy meal. However, offering a small sweet treat as an alternative can really hit

the spot. These truffles are lovely plain or you can flavour them with some of the

suggestions listed below – the variations are endless.


Ingredients:

2 cups (285g/10oz) chopped good quality dark or white chocolate

½ cup cream

flavouring and/or coatings of your choice (see below for suggestions)


Method:

• Place the chocolate in a large bowl.

• Pour the cream into a medium-sized saucepan and heat on a low heat until simmering (do not boil).

• Pour cream over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate melts and forms a smooth mixture.

• Mix in flavours if using.

• Place in the fridge for about 2 hours until chilled.

• Form mixture into balls using a melon baller or teaspoon and roll in desired coating.


Flavouring suggestions: 1 tbsp of rum or Grand Marnier, ¼ cup of finely chopped glazed cherries, dried fruit or crystallised ginger, or 1 tsp lemon or orange zest. Coating suggestions: about ¾ cup cocoa powder, desiccated coconut, melted chocolate, chopped nuts or icing sugar.
