Chocolate & country cream truffles (V) (GF)


The perfect festive gift, with only five ingredients

Makes 32 • Ready in 30 mins, plus chilling  


  1. Break the chocolate into a large bowl and pour over the double cream. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring in between, until completely melted and smooth.
  2. Mix in the country cream, then pour into a shallow roasting tin or large glass dish. Cover the surface of the mixture directly with cling film and chill for 3-4 hours, until firm.
  3. Remove the cling film and score the surface of the mixture into around 32 sections, then scoop out a piece at a time and roll into a ball. Put the icing sugar and desiccated coconut into shallow dishes.
  4. Roll the truffles, one at a time, in the sugar, then the coconut. Place on a tray and chill until fully set.
  5. Store chilled in an airtight container until ready to serve.
