Chocolate Truffles…

Fancy making some chocolate truffles?

Great for presents to make for someone special.


  • 150g plain chocolate
  • 150ml thick double cream
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons rum or brandy
  • 1 tablespoon Greek Yoghurt
  • Sweet paper or petit fours cases

25g of any of the following:

  • Whitworths Chopped Almonds
  • Whitworths Chopped Hazelnuts
  • Whitworths Toasted Chopped Mixed Nuts
  • Whitworths Flaked Almonds, roughly chopped


  1. Break the chocolate into small pieces and grind it in a food processor or grate until very fine.
  2. In a pan simmer the cream, butter, and rum or brandy.
  3. Add the chocolate and mix off the heat until smooth.
  4. Add the yoghurt and stir in.
  5. Transfer the mixture into a bowl, cover with cling film and cool.
  6. Then leave in the fridge overnight, or simply place in the freezer for 1-2 hours until thickened.
  7. Take a teaspoon of the mixture and roll between your hands to create a ball shape.
  8. Roll each individual ball in the chosen chopped nuts to then place into the paper cases.
  9. This recipe should make approximately 40 truffles that can be put into boxes and given as Christmas gifts.
  10. They should be kept refrigerated and be eaten within three days.
  11. The truffles also freeze well.
