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.

Ingredients

  • 300 g dark chocolate
  • 300 ml double cream
  • half teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • half teaspoon ground cloves,
  • half teaspoon ground ginger
  • half teaspoon mixed spice
  • cocoa powder for dusting
  • 200 g white chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • green colour paste Use the paste not liquid colours

Instructions

  • Line a bowl with cling film.
  • Put the chocolate in a bowl snapped up or cut into small pieces.
  • In a saucepan warm up the double cream with the spices until it starts to boil and take it off the heat and pour it over the chocolate.
  • Mix the chocolate and cream together slowly until smooth and glossy.
  • Pour into the bowl and leave to cool at room temperature and then pop in the fridge for about 1 hour until firm.
  • Remove the truffle bowl from the fridge. 
  • Scoop out balls of truffle with a teaspoon and set aside.
  • Melt 200g white chocolate and added a green colour paste to get it to a Brussels Sprouts colour. Gradually add up to 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil to make the chocolate slightly runnier.
  • Dip the truffles in the chocolate using a kebab stick, shook off the excess chocolate and set them to harden on greaseproof paper. The messier the better!
  • If you have any truffles left over coat them in cocoa powder.
