Rich and delicious grown up treats! This recipe (found in The Chocolate Book, and modified slightly) makes about 30 truffles.
Six in a nice box would make a lovely gift. I made some mini truffles as a gift. See P.S. for photo.
8oz (225g.) Milk or Dark Chocolate
4oz (125g.) butter, diced
6oz (175g.) icing sugar
2 teaspoons (10mls) liquer (tia maria, brandy etc;)
For the coating:
Truffles can be coated in any of the following:
chocolate hundreds and thousands
1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water then remove from heat.
2. Add the butter and liqueur and beat until smooth
3. Beat in the icing sugar
4. Chill until firm
5. Shape into 1inch (2.5cm) balls and roll in chosen coating.
6. Place in paper cases and keep cool

I always forget to put baking ingredients on my regular shopping list, but ordering them online gets them in my kitchen ready to go!
P.S. Just before Christmas I made some small truffles without the alcohol for a family gift. They all got eaten!
