Description

Roll your truffles in shredded coconut to add a little texture. Adults only!

Time

Time 25 min | Chill 4 hr

Serves

30

Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 40g butter, chopped
  • 1/3 cup thickened cream
  • 52g bar Cherry Ripe, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cherry flavoured liqueur or brandy, optional
  • 1/3 cup Dutch cocoa

Method



  1. Put chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Place butter and cream in a small saucepan, stir over low heat until butter has melted. Bring to boil, remove from heat.
  2. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate. Stand for 2 min. Using a metal spoon, stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir through Cherry Ripe and liqueur. Chill for 3-4 hr or until firm enough to roll.
  3. Sift cocoa onto a plate. Remove truffle mixture from fridge and roll heaped teaspoons into small bite-size balls. Roll in cocoa and place on a lined tray. Cover and chill until firm.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 2 months. Bring to room temperature before serving.
