Homemade Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate truffles make the perfect homemade gift to give at Christmas, or to enjoy yourself while snuggled up in front of a festive film.



  • 225g of high quality chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • 120ml of double cream
  • Tsp of vanilla extract
  • Cocoa powder to coat




  • In a small pan, warm the double cream through on a gentle simmer.

  • In a seperate bowl, add the chopped pieces of chocolate, before slowly pouring over the heated cream and vanilla extract. Leave to stand for two minutes before stirring into a smooth mixture.

  • Allow the chocolate mixture to cool, before popping in the fridge to set for two hours.

  • Once it's chilled, scoop a small amount from the bowl and roll (with clean hands) into a ball.

  • Line a tray with greaseproof paper and place the balls on the tray, before refridgerating overnight.

  • In the morning, take the balls out of the fridge and carefully roll them in cocoa powder.

  • Now they are ready to enjoy! Alternatively, if you are giving these as a gift, pop them in a little gift box, lined with tissue paper.
