Classic Chocolate Truffles

Satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth with this creamy chocolate dessert.


1/2 cup whipping cream
225 grams semi-sweet chocolate
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons powdered sugar


In a medium saucepan, bring the cream to a boil. Meanwhile, chop the chocolate into small, uniform pieces.

Once the cream starts to bubble, turn off the heat and stir in the chocolate and butter.

Whisk in the chocolate un­til it’s completely melted and smooth. In a large bowl, pour the mixture and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.

Using a melon baller, shape 24 small chocolate balls and carefully put them on a plate. Place them in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.

In a small bowl, sift together the cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Coat each truffle in the mixture.

You can easily modify this recipe. For example, you could add a small amount of almond extract, orange zest or your favourite liqueur. Alternatively, you may want to coat your truffles with slivered nuts, chopped coconut or even crushed candy canes. Feel free to be creative.
