In a heavy-bottomed pan, bring heavy whipping cream to a simmer on low heat. Keep scraping the sides of the pan every few minutes with a spatula.

After it cools down a little, place the mixture in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Grease your hands a little with butter, and quickly make round balls of the mixture and keep placing them on a parchment paper.

When you want to serve the truffles, remove a few and toss them in either drinking chocolate or powdered sugar as desired.

Serve immediately and keep the remaining in the refrigerator.
