These classic chocolate truffles take only a few simple ingredients to make and offer a rich, fudgy flavor that will please any chocoholic.
HOW TO MAKE:
To start, the chocolate is coarsely chopped and placed inside a medium heat-proof bowl.
The heavy cream and butter are then brought to a low boil in a small saucepan and poured over the chocolate.
After letting the mixture stand for a minute and stirring to combine, the bowl is covered and chilled in the refrigerator for a minimum of four hours or until firm.
To shape the truffles, each piece is rolled into a ball by hand and coated in unsweetened cocoa powder.
The finished truffles can then be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week or in the freezer for up to one month.
