Truffles

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, why don’t you make some truffles to serve with coffee tomorrow? They are delicious and very easy. You could prepare by doing steps 1-3 yourself first, and then have clients roll and decorate balls themselves. Don’t forget to check out your facility’s food handling prodecures first. Gloves, gloves, gloves!! Oh and make sure you eat these snappily, they won’t be good for more than a couple of days due to limited preservatives!

To make about 40 chocolate truffles you will need:

  • 225g  of plain chocolate roughly chopped
  • 175g  of unsalted butter chopped
  • 60mltable spoons of double cream
  • 100g of icing sugar
  • 75g of grounded almonds
  • Cocoa powder, icing sugar and chocolate or

To make the chocolate truffles:

  1. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a bowl placed over a saucepan of hot water or in the microwave, stirring with a wooden spoon
  2. Remove from the heat, stir in the cream then gradually stir in the sugar and almonds
  3. Cover and leave to cool in the fridge for a few hours
  4. Form the mixture into small balls. Roll them in your hands – the warmth of your hands will slightly melt the chocolate and allow the coatings to stick
  5. Roll each ball in one of the coatings and place on the tray. To get around infection control issues, maybe you could get clients to make and eat their own, writing their names on the greaseproof paper.
