Satisfy those chocolate cravings day or night, with a quick batch of these delicious Dark Chocolate Ganache Truffles. Not only are they quick and easy but they taste delish! Bursting with chocolate goodness, they are rich in flavour without being too sweet with no added sugar.
Dusted in cocoa powder, they look spectacular. They are the perfect treat to whip out at a dinner party and serve as an after dinner sweet. If you are anything like me, some days just call for a sweet treat and chocolate is always the answer!
This easy recipe is for a small batch of truffles, so you don’t have to worry about rolling 50+ truffles or having the temptation of oodles of chocolate balls sitting in the fridge. Instead, this recipe will make just ten delightfully rich, soft and chewy chocolate truffles.
Plus you only need three ingredients – three you probably already have in your pantry or fridge right now. You could also roll the truffles in all kinds of toppings, from crushed nuts to sprinkles. Sky’s the limit! So what are you waiting for? Let's get trufflin'. I'm sharing the recipe for these beauties over on Mandy’s Recipe Box today.
Dark Chocolate Ganache Truffles
Makes approximately 10 truffles
150 grams (1 cup) good quality dark chocolate
120 ml (1/2 cup) heavy or thickened cream
25 grams (1/3 cup) cocoa powder
Finely chop the dark chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan, add the cream and place on a medium heat until the cream is simmering but just before it starts to boil. Immediately pour the warm cream over the chocolate, cover the bowl with a plate and leave it to sit for 3-5 minutes. Then, whisk the chocolate cream mixture until smooth and creamy. Transfer the chocolate ganache into a small but deep container, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least two hours.
Sift the cocoa powder into a separate bowl. Once the ganache has become firm, remove from the freezer and use a cookie scoop or a teaspoon to spoon out the truffles and roll them smooth in your hands. Drop them into the cocoa powder and roll around until completely coated before removing and setting on a plate. Continue until all truffles are done. Store in the fridge.
