Christmas is amongst us and what better way to get in the festive spirit than making truffles! Everyone can get involved making these and you can use whatever flavours you want. Lots of alcohol goes well with dark chocolate, such as brandy, rum or champagne. I chose Cointreau as Dean and I love chocolate orange and we normally get one in our Christmas stockings.
This is also a great recipe to make as gifts for family and friends at Christmas time. As an added bonus they also make a great canapé if you’re thinking of having a festive party!
I took ours round to friends so we could all sample them. They went down very well and not many were left at the end of the night – so I’d say they were a result! I would recommend you store them in the fridge if you like them a little firmer, by the end of the evening they had gone slightly softer. I keep all my chocolate in the fridge, Dean finds this rather weird but its just how I like it!
Have a go at making these and if you come up with any great flavours then let me know!
