Dark Chocolate Ganache Truffles

Yield Makes 15 truffles 1x
Prep: 230 minutesTotal: 3 hours 50 minutes

Rich and creamy dark chocolate truffles made with just 3 ingredients.


  • 200 grams (1 and 1/3 cup) good quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) heavy or thickened cream
  • 40 grams (1/2 cup) cocoa powder


  1. Finely chop dark chocolate using a serrated knife and place in a heatproof bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, add cream and place on a medium heat. Warm until cream is simmering (and hot to the touch) but just before it starts to boil.
  3. Immediately pour the warm cream over the chocolate, cover and leave to sit for 3-5 minutes. Then, whisk chocolate cream until smooth.
  4. Transfer chocolate ganache to a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set.
  5. Sift cocoa powder into a separate bowl. Once the ganache has become firm, use a cookie scoop to spoon out roughly one level tablespoon of ganache per truffle. Roll smooth using your hands.
  6. Drop the truffles 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.
