- 120 g dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
- 1/4th cup heavy whipping cream
- 3-4 drops vanilla extract
For the Coating
- Drinking chocolate powder
- Powdered sugar
- Colourful sprinkles
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.
In a deep bowl, place the chocolate pieces and pour this heated cream over it. Let it stand for 5 mins and then give it a stir.
Keep stirring until all the lumps get dissolved and the mixture becomes smooth.
After it cools down a little, place the mixture in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Remove the mixture from the fridge and with the help of a teaspoon, remove small portions of the mixture.
Grease your hands a little with butter, and quickly make round balls of the mixture and keep placing them on a parchment paper.
Place the formed balls again in the refrigerator. Keep it overnight.
When you want to serve the truffles, remove a few and toss them in either drinking chocolate or powdered sugar as desired.
You can also mix in some colourful sprinkles to take things a notch higher.
Serve immediately and keep the remaining in the refrigerator.
