Preparation Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes

You Will Need

  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 100 ml double cream
  • 1 vanilla extract
  • 30 g unsalted butter
  • 50 g unsweetened cocoa powder


Boil the cream. Once the cream has reached boiling point, remove from the heat, add the chocolate and stir well to melt. When all the chocolate is melted, stir in the softened butter and, again, mix well. This mixture is called a ganache.

Spread the ganache thinly on a tray or plate and put in the fridge to set for around two hours. Once it is set, use a spoon to scrape up small pieces of and form into balls. Dip them into some cocoa powder and these are your French truffles.
