Party Perfect: Luxe Chocolate Truffles

It’s time to give in to those chocolate cravings – it is Christmas after all! We love this recipe from Sophie Michell’s beautiful new cookery book, Chef on a Diet. These lightly salted chocolate truffles are the perfect party plate.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 250 ml double cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 500 g dark chocolate (about 60% cocoa solids is good), finely chopped
  • 50 g cocoa powder

Recipe Method

Line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper. Place the cream, vanilla and sea salt in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil for a minute, then remove  from the heat and add the chocolate. Stir well until all the chocolate has melted, then set aside to cool at room temperature for about one hour.

Once the chocolate mixture is cool enough, pour it into a piping bag and pipe small mounds onto the prepared baking sheets, then place in the fridge for about one hour until set. Roll in the cocoa powder and serve. The truffles will keep for a few weeks in the fridge, but bring them to room temperature before eating.
