Chocolate truffles…sort ofApril 29th, 2008 | Written by jfolkmann | Topic: Dessert
With some inspiration from City Palate magazine I decided to make my own chocolate truffles. Although they are very very tasty, they didn’t turn out very truffle like. They’re more like slightly soft chocolate drops. I’m not sure exactly what happened.
200g dark chocolate
1/4 cup honey (I used a very floral wild flower honey which added a nice touch.)
In a small sauce pan melt the chocolate and honey over a low heat. You’ll have to be fairly attentive so it doesn’t burn. Once melted, chill it for about 10 minutes in the fridge. Remove from the fridge and scoop out the chocolate with a teaspoon and then roll it into small balls. Place them on a plate and dust with cacao powder.
