Homemade Chocolate Truffles

I learnt this from watching Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Christmas 2010. Immediately, the very next day, 23rd Dec, i went to shop for ingredients and made this for our Christmas 2010! As my wife loved Dark Chocolate, this was a real treat!


250ml double cream (48% fat)
250ml single cream (10% to 12% fat) or you can use evaporated milk
500g dark chocolate (about 70% cocoa solids)
130g butter, diced
130g honey
cocoa powder 


1. Pour both creams into a medium saucepan.
2. Heat very gently for 5–6 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, break up the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl with the diced butter and honey.
Strain the hot cream through a sieve onto the chocolate, butter and honey. 
4. Continue to stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.
5. Pour the mixture into a dish, chill in the fridge for an hour or until firm.
6. Scatter cocoa powder on separate plates. Take the truffle mix from the fridge and, using a teaspoon, scoop out a portion and shape into a sphere by quickly rolling it in your hands. (Do this speedily to avoid the truffle melting with the warmth of your hands.) 
7. Toss the truffle in cocoa powder and arrange on a plate. Repeat with the rest.
8. Place the truffles in a shallow plastic container, seal and refrigerate until firm and ready to serve.
9. Enjoy!
