Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

At my first job, which I started directly after graduating from Warwick Chef School, we have made delicious chocolate truffels for the guests. The room ladies took it to their rooms while they were having their dinner. A cheeseboard, consisting of some delicious cheeses from the neighbour cheese making farm, were beautifully plated on a mini cheese board, going to the rooms as well. The key in this recipe is to use a good quality dark chocolate. Cheap cooking chocolate will most definitely turn this into a disaster. So do not attempt to make this chocolate truffels if you are not willing to buy a more expensive chocolate. If you love this recipe, also try out the Chocolate Fondant or Chocolate Mousse
