Dark Chocolate Truffles in the Microwave

Dark Chocolate Truffles in the Microwave

For those that love the taste of dark chocolate, try these smooth and rich bites. Give them away as a present or treat yourself.

Ingredients: Fifteen 3 cm bitesized chocolates

Dark chocolate
100 g
Butter
20 g
Heavy cream
50 ml
To finish
Cocoa powder (unsweetened)
as needed

Steps

1. Chop or break the chocolate into 5 mm pieces. Cut the butter into 5 mm pieces as well and add everything to a heatresistant container.
2. Microwave at 600 W for 1.5 minutes until everything is melted, and mix with a whisk.
3. In a separate heatresistant container, heat the cream at 600 W for 30 seconds.
4. Add the cream into the melted chocolate and butter mixture and mix well with a whisk.
5. Add the mixture into moulds with a spoon and lightly tap the mould against a surface to even out.
6. Put the mould in the refrigerator for 3 hours to allow the chocolates to set. (If they don't set very well in the refrigerator, transfer to the freezer.)
7. If you're using a silicon mould, you can push the chocolates out easily from the bottom.
8. Use a tea strainer to sift cocoa powder on top.
9. When storing the chocolates at home, I recommend keeping them in an airtight container.
