Boozy Dark Chocolate & Orange Truffles


450g of Dark Chocolate
50g Butter
80ml Thickened cream
80ml Cointreau
50ml fresh orange juice
Cacao powder for dusting


Place all the ingredients in a large heatproof bowl and place over a pan of simmering water. Stir constantly until all has melted and combined into gooey, chocolatey awesomeness.
Place in the refrigerator and allow to cool completely (3 to 4 hours but up to 6 is preferred)
Remove from the refrigerator. With a teaspoon/ melon baller/ cookie dough scoop or similar, scoop out the desired amount of truffle and roll between your hands to form a ball. Roll in the cacao powder and place on a plate or container.
Can be enjoyed immediately (it is best to serve them whilst chilled otherwise they melt and become gooey and sticky - not a completely terrible situation but not quite the desired effect) or stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.


This may not be the most “Nude Food” like recipe in the world but we all need an indulgence every now and then, right? And when the indulgence is these Boozy Dark Chocolate and Orange truffles well… you could do a lot worse. Nomnomnomnomnomnomnom!!!!!!!
