Valentine Chocolate Truffles


It's Valentine's day at the weekend. It feels like it's come around pretty quickly this year. If you have left it a little last minute and are looking for something special to make for your Valentine which looks like you've put in loads of effort but actually is effortless to rustle up then these super quick Chocolate truffles are the perfect recipe for you! 

They make the perfect little gift for your Valentine and even a novice chef can make them, with only 4 ingredients and in only 30mins! (plus a little setting time) 

You only need 4 things!
300g chocolate (plain, milk or white any work)
30g butter
200ml double cream
sprinkles to decorate

Make it...
Fill a large saucepan half full with water and simmer over a medium heat.

Break up all the chocolate put into a heat proof bowl along with the butter.
Place the bowl in the saucepan  to make a bain-marie and stir until the chocolate and butter have melted.

Heat the cream in another saucepan until it starts to think about bubbling (almost boiling), take it of the heat immediately add it to the chocolate.

Now stir, stir, stir until its all mixed together well and it's smooth. Allow to cool, then chill in the fridge for a few hours. 

Once the Ganache has set, take a small bowl and add your sprinkles

Use a spoon to take some of the Ganache and roll into small balls in your hands, roll each ball in the sprinkles until coated. Place the truffles into a dish and chill until ready to serve to the one you love!

Happy Valentines Day all!
