Hazelnut chocolate truffles
Easy to make and even easier to devour, these velvety smooth chocolate truffles, made with new Baileys Hazelnut Flavour to give a luxuriously nutty taste, are just the thing to share with friends.
What you need:
- 100ml Baileys Hazelnut Flavour
- 150g unsalted butter
- 270g 66% dark chocolate
- 150ml double cream
For the dip:
- 250g of dark chocolate (min 66% cocoa)
- 250g cocoa powder
What you do:
- Break the chocolate into small lumps. Fill a saucepan with water, place a heatproof bowl inside (large enough so it rests on the rim of the pan) and bring it to a simmer
- Put the chocolate and butter into the heatproof bowl and melt them both, slowly. Do not stir, as this can cause lumps
- When the chocolate and butter are fully melted, take the saucepan off the heat and carefully remove the bowl. Whisk in the double cream and Baileys Hazelnut
- Leave to set in the fridge for 2 hours
- Using a melon-baller, start scooping out the truffles - they should form the shape of a ball
- Place truffles on a plate and leave to cool down in the fridge for half an hour
- When you're ready to serve, melt a further 250g of 66% chocolate in the same way as before, dip each truffle into the melted chocolate and then roll in cocoa powder.
