#STFFcooks – Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

I’ve recently joined Pinterest – a little late to the party, but better late than never! It’s really inspired me and has given me loads of new foodie ideas. As if by serendipity, I was also invited to attend a baking event at the Miele showroom in London. Bestie wrote about our experience here.  So with all these new ideas floating around in my head, I decided that this year I would make all my Christmas gifts.

My most favourite recipe that we learnt at the Miele event was Chocolate Truffles. They are so super-easy that it may be dangerous. I take no responsibility for any expanding waistlines after sharing this recipe!

Recipe # 12: Chocolate Truffles
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12 truffles
  • 115g plain chocolate
  • 40g butter, cubed
  • 55g ground almonds
  • 6 glacier cherries
  • 3 tbsp brandy or rum (optional)
  • 55g icing sugar
  1. Add the chocolate and butter together into a pan and melt on a low heat on the hob. Take off the heat and add the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Place into the fridge and allow to cool.
  3. When it has cooled, take it out of the fridge and using a teaspoon measure (so that all the truffles are the same size) take some of the mix and roll each truffle into a ball.
  4. Coat in the topping of your choice. I used chocolate vermicelli and edible stars.

Until we eat again!

    Chocolate truffles are actually one of the best things about Christmas. No. I take that back. They’re one of the best things to bake at any time of year!
