Method

  1. Bring the cream to the boil in a small pan. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate until it has melted. Stir in the liqueur and pour into a bowl. Cool, then chill until firm, about 4 hrs, or overnight.
  2. Sprinkle a sheet of greaseproof paper with icing sugar and another with cocoa powder. Take a teaspoon and scoop nuggets of truffle mix out of the bowl and onto either the paper with cocoa powder or icing sugar. Use two teaspoons to coat the nuggets then transfer them to paper sweet cases. Pack into paper sweet cases in boxes and chill. Store for up to 2 weeks.

I have been making this recipe for years and it is so easy. I flavour half my mix with Baileys dusted with cocoa and half with peppermint essence dusted with icing sugar arrange alternately in a box in small silver and gold sweet cases and give as Christmas presents. I prefer to roll them to make small truffle like shapes. If they get that far they can be frozen. :-)

The mixture came out too soft, and the icing sugar coating tended to soak up moisture and disappear...

All in all, not quite as easy as I thought it would be. Then again, I am a complete beginner...

These little nuggets taste fanastic and are equally as popular with brandy. I prefer to roll them in grated white chocolate. YUM!!
