Hey, hey, everybody comes to the kitchen when the chocolate truffes are being prepared ! Who knows, we could eat one or two of them before the others. Obviously, nobody resists to the chocolate truffes ! And, for Christmas, they are simply compulsory ;-)
Here is thus my recipe...
Caution : Do not forget we aren't allowed to cook alone ! An adult must stay with us. See Instructions.
- 280 gr of dark chocolat
- 60 gr of butter
- 20 gr of icing sugar
- 50 gr of unsweetened powdered cacao
- 10 cl of single cream
1/ In a saucepan, pour half water and make it warm.
2/ In a glass bowl, put the chocolate in pieces and the butter.
3/ Put the bowl over the saucepan (this process is called "bain-marie") to make the chocolate melted with the butter. Be very careful, this could be dangerous ! You have to pay attention not to scald yourself. You must ask to the adult who is cooking with you to do that.
4/ Add the single cream by continuing to mix.
5/ Add the icing sugar by continuing to mix.
6/ Turn off the fire under the saucepan.
7/ Let cool and put the bowl in the refrigerator during one hour at least.
8/ Then, pour the unsweetened powdered cacao in a soup plate.
9/ Take out the bowl of the refrigerator.
10/ With a soup spoon, take a little dough.
11/ Roll it in your hands to obtain a ball.
12/ Roll this ball in the unsweetened powdered cacao.
13/ Do this again until there is no more dough in the bowl.
Ouch, ouch, ouch, what a treat... But not too much, you wouldn't be sick !
We can offer them too. In a jar with a home-made Christmas card, it's a nice gift.
Good wednesday, my friends !
