The Brussels Sprouts Christmas Trufffles

Let’s get truffle making! These are fairly quick to make but are definitely messy. If you have hot hands like me wash them in cold water regularly when you’re handling the chocolate to stop it melting too fast.

For the food colouring use colour pastes to dye the chocolate not liquid ones as they won’t mix in properly. The paste doesn’t make the chocolate have any reaction so will harden properly.

The finished Brussels Sprouts Christmas Truffles look so beautiful when the chocolate had hardened. The colour definitely make people look twice but it’s so worth making. They always make people laugh and that is worth the effort alone.
