Homemade Best Chocolate Truffle



Chocolate truffles are sensuously, rich, delicate and pure treat. Basically chocolate truffles are made of chocolate ganache, where rich dark chocolate is combined with heavy cream and rolled into soft pebbles shape. The smooth, silky texture of truffles and the sheer pleasure of chocolate melting in my mouth makes me go weak on my knees. 


Since ages chocolate truffles have been the best gifts for all kind of celebrations which includes the basic and traditional one which is rolled into cocoa powder, but actually you can make them in a variety of ways. Like rolled in shredded coconut, dusted with confectioner's sugar or you can roll them with chopped nuts also, choice is unlimited.


Ingredients:
200gm quality semisweet chocolate (or you can take dark chocolate also), broken into small pieces
1/2 cup Whipping cream
1 tbsp unsalted Butter
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder (optional)


For Coating:
Cocoa powder, sifted, to roll
Grated dried coconut
Chopped pistachio


Method:
 Place cream and butter in a saucepan and on low heat bring to boil. Then immediately pour over chopped chocolate. Keep stirring until all the chocolate has melted. The texture should be very smooth and silky, this is called Ganache. Now sprinkle cardamom powder if you wish to add here. Cool and chill this ganache for 2-3 hours if in hurry or for best results keep it overnight.




Now scoop it with a melon baller and shape them into bite-sized balls. To prevent your palm from sticking you can use icing sugar and then toss it in the cocoa powder. Remember you are handling chocolate here so choose the coldest area in your kitchen and marble slab is best place to arrange. Spread a sheet of butter paper on slab and place the rolled truffles. 




For variation you can roll few in chopped pistachio, caramlized chopped cashews and dried coconut also. If you want to gift these homemade truffles then place them in individual foils or small liners and store in an air tight box keep in fridge. Enjoy these delicious truffles for any occasion.
