Here is the basic truffle recipe that I will be sharing and demonstrating at The Rockin Food Festival in Enniscorthy today. You can use this to make your own truffles at home.
*125ml double cream
*200g milk chocolate
*50g dark chocolate
115g unsalted butter
* Place cream in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Melt chocolate gently over a simmering bowl of water, add cream and whisk
* Cut butter into small cubes, add to the mix. Whisk until smooth. You can add flavours at this stage if using. Pour mixture into small bowl and refrigerate for a few hours
* Once the mixture is set, spoon out and roll into balls on parchment paper
* The truffles can be rolled in crushed nuts, coconut or dipped in melted chocolate. Allow to set and then enjoy!!
