Ingredients
  • 200g bar Asda Dark Chocolate (50% cocoa solids), roughly chopped
  • 50g Extra Special Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa solids), roughly chopped
  • 150ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp liqueur (either amaretto, rum, Tia Maria, Cointreau or Malibu)
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder, for dusting
Method
  • Put the chocolate in a bowl. Heat the cream until just simmering, then remove immediately from the heat and pour onto the chocolate. Stir until melted and smooth.

  • Stir in the liqueur and chill for at least 3 hours.

  • Put the cocoa on a plate. Using 2 teaspoons, shape the chocolate mixture into small balls, then roll in the cocoa. The truffles will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
