these were all of our ingredients, but essentially you just need good quality chocolate and cream
this was the recipe we followed
melt chocolate - mum wanted the microwave but I ALWAYS burn it
this way, it just goes glossy
measure your cream
we wanted hazelnut/almond coating so we chopped said nuts
add the cream to the melted chocolate - some recipes stated to warm the cream others didn't, we were being lazy so we didn't but I realise now why we should have; the cream is cold from being kept in the fridge and so the chocolate starts to harden almost immediately, making it difficult mix together!
it was do-able though
separate the mixture if you plan on having different flavours - we chose to do a plain chocolate and a chocolate orange type, for this I halved an orange, gave a generous squeeze and mixed
it wasn't enough in my opinion so I grated some peel, finely chopped some more and layered some on top before placing in the freezer
pop it in the fridge (or freezer if you don't have a long time, read: impatient)
take a seat and have a little break
Get the mixes out of the freezer and start shaping, as you can see the orange was a bit too acidic and made the truffles go quite sticky and runny
the others turned out a treat though!
This was a really delicious adventure and so so easy, I urge you to have a go and try out a couple of different varities! It's a lot of fun.
