Step by step guide

 

Step one: Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until it is smooth, creamy, and lump free.

Step two: Break up the chocolate into small pieces, and place them in a bowl. Sit the bowl over a pan of boiling water and stir it until the chocolate melts.

Step three: Beat in the vanilla extract and the egg and whisk for three minutes. Whilst whisking, gradually sprinkle in the cocoa powder.

Indulgent Champagne Truffles

Chocoholic Heaven!

The last time I made these I was 9-years-old and I made them with my nana! Back then, they went surprisingly well for a 9-year-old (who had plenty of help from her grandparents) so I thought there’d be no harm in giving them another shot now I’m 19-years-old!

Ingredients

You will need:

☕ 150g dark
chocolate
☕ 150ml double
cream
☕ 5g butter
☕ 1tbsp sugar
☕ 5tbsp cocoa powder
☕ 3tbsp champagne
☕ pinch of salt
☕ chocolate pieces for decoration

Follow this simple step by step guide on how to make champagne truffles.

Champagne Truffles Guide

Step one: Put the cream in a pan over a medium heat and let it heat up. Once it is heated, add the butter until it mixes in. Whilst you’re waiting, break the chocolate into pieces and place it in a mixing bowl, and when the mixtures has cooled slightly, pour it over the chocolate and mix it in.

Step two: Add the salt, sugar and champagne to the mixture and whisk until everything is blended together.

Step three: Pour the mixture into a serving dish and leave it in the fridge over night so it can set properly. It may be very runny but it will set within a few hours.

Step four: Remove the truffles from the fridge the next day and scoop small spoonfuls up and place them on a plate of cocoa powder and sprinkle some powder over them.

Step Five: Once they are covered, place them in truffle cases and add a variety of chocolate chips for decoration!

Yummy Truffles! 

These are the truffles that I made earlier. The mixture made about 30-40 truffles so you will have more than enough to share with your friends.

I simply topped them with white chocolate, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate chips. I also used a few dark chocolate shavings to make them look nicer.

However if you prefer you can also use chocolate sprinkles.

Remember, there are many different types of truffles you can make! To change the flavour of them swap the champagne for rum, brandy or red wine. You can also add a handful of nuts into the mixture of even shavings of orange peel if you’d rather not use alcohol.
