Easy chocolate truffles

Decadent chocolate truffles are surprisingly simple to make. They are great with coffee, or packaged in a pretty box as a gift.

You will need:

Break up the chocolate, put it in a small saucepan with the cream, and stir over low heat until the chocolate melts. Turn off the heat and stir in the liqueur. Pour the chocolate mixture into a bowl, cover, and put it in the fridge overnight to set.

Take the chocolate mixture out of the fridge, shape teaspoons of the mixture into balls, and roll in the cocoa powder until completely covered (don’t try to do this on a hot day or your truffles will melt).

Your truffles are done. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge between layers of baking paper.
