Homemade Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Craft sophisticated, rich, and divine homemade chocolate truffles with this simple recipe. A splendid treat for special occasions or a sweet gift.





  • Step 1.

    Create a bain-marie by putting a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water (ensure the bowl doesn't touch the water). Add the chocolate and butter and allow to melt, stirring occasionally.
  • Step 2.

    Once melted, slowly stir in double cream until the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until firm.
  • Step 3.

    Using a melon baller or small spoon, scoop out chocolate balls and place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Return to the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.
  • Step 4.

    In the meantime, put the cocoa powder in a shallow dish. Remove truffles from the fridge and roll each in cocoa until fully coated. Return to the baking sheet and refrigerate until ready to serve.
