  • chocolate-covered caramel (we used Rolos)



    This is white, granulated sugar melted until it browns, after which it sets clear and hard when…

  • edible gold lustre (we bought ours from Waitrose)
  • sea salt flakes


  1. Unwrap the chocolate-covered caramels and use a small paintbrush to dust the outsides with gold lustre. Add a few flakes of sea salt to the top of each one, then arrange on a serving plate (stacking in a tower makes them look extra special). Chill for at least 1 hr before serving.

Recipe? I don't think so. Gold coloured Rolos are not, and never will be, truffles! Come on BBC Good Food, this is appalling.

This must be the worse "recipe" ever in print. Pointless to say the least - but I bet the makers of Rolos are very happy.

I actually did try these, just out of curiosity. They tasted like Rolos with salt on top. Not unpleasant, just a bit pointless and cheap. I certainly wouldn't want to give them as a gift.

Agree with fifimg. I've never before complained about a recipe unless I've tried it, but calling a rolo with a bit of salt and lustre dust a truffle is really misleading

Oh please...ROLOS? With a bit of seasalt on top? Rolos are not truffles. I couldn't quite believe this one when I saw it in the magazine. Are standards slipping???
