  • 200 g dark chocolate I used 75% cocoa solids
  • 175 mL cream
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Chop up chocolate into fine pieces and place in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat cream over medium heat until little bubbles form in the cream around the rim of the saucepan.
  3. Remove from heat and pour over chocolate. Leave for 2 minutes.
  4. Using a whisk, mix together the cream and chocolate. At first it will look like the mixture won’t come together but stick with it and eventually it will turn into a velvety, glossy chocolate paste.
  5. Add flavourings, if using.
  6. Leave in fridge for approximately 1-2 hours to set.
  7. Once set, remove from fridge. Using a teaspoon, take a scoop out of the chocolate truffle mixture, roll in your hands to create a ball shape if desires, and drop in a shallow bowl filled with cocoa or other topping. Roll around to coat then remove. Repeat until all mixture is used up.
  8. Will keep for 2 days at room temperature or up to a week in the fridge.
