Christmas Pudding Truffles

truffles

Christmas Pudding Truffles
[Makes about 12 truffles]

100 grams dark chocolate, chopped (I used Callebaut dark chocolate)
45mls cream
6 tablespoons Fruitmince
cocoa, for dusting
edible red holly bead, to decorate

Make ganache:
Place the dark chocolate and the cream into a small saucepan and heat over a very low flame until the chocolate has melted and amalgamated with the cream to form a smooth thick mixture.

Add the fruitmince to the melted ganache, stir well and then pour out into a bowl to cool. Place it in the fridge to harden for a few hours.

I've used a small ice-cream scoop to form the balls but you can just roll out spoonfuls of the mixture by hand. Place the balls on a lined tray - return to the fridge to allow them to firm up again.

Sift the cocoa into a small bowl and drop the balls into the cocoa, swivel the bowl to coat the balls, then dust off the excess before setting them into their cases.

Top with a red holly bead and return to the fridge until you're ready to serve them.
