Valentines Choccy Treats

It's that time of year again, some hate it, but some LOVE it- there is no escaping the red fluffy hearts, smug couples and red glitter. So to join in the Valentines antics, I thought I would post a little treat how-to for all of you to enjoy alone, or with a loved one (I personally prefer to eat these alone). How to make French chocolate truffles:

 1. Gently boil 175g of double cream, take off the heat and add the plain chocolate (chopped,270g), stir until melted. Then add the butter (25g) and again, stir until melted. Cover this mixture and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.



 2. Line a baking tray/lunchbox with baking paper, using your hands, form the mixture into small (or big) chocolate balls.

 3. To coat the truffles in cocoa: drop the truffles in one by one making sure they are all covered. Then chill.

4. To coat the truffles in chocolate: freeze truffles for around 1 hour. Then melt the milk/white/plain chocolate (200g) over some boiling water, take off the heat and leave to cool for a few seconds. Now, using a fork dip each truffle into the chocolate until covered and then place onto the lined tray/lunch box. Chill ASAP.
 I also decorated mine with a little coloured chocolate piping (I know, check me out!)


 These can be stored for about a week so you have plenty of time to enjoy (although I did eat them all in one sitting)!


Enjoy!
