Surprise your special one this Valentine’s Day with some homemade chocolate truffles. Easy to make but deliciously moreish.


  • 75ml double cream

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Cocoa powder and desiccated coconut to coat


1. Put the cream and butter into a pan and heat gently until just simmering. Put the chocolate into a heatproof bowl, pour over the cream and butter and stir until melted.

2. Stir in the vanilla extract and chill for 1 hour or until set and thick enough to roll. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet or tray with grease proof paper and spread your truffle coatings out on small plates.

3. Shape a teaspoonful of truffle mix into a ball with your fingertips. Roll in a coating and place on baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the mixture and chill for 1 hour to set.
