Ingredients

  • 225 g dark chocolate
  • 200 g whipping cream
  • 50 g ‘nduja roughly chopped
  • 3 teaspoons light muscovado sugar
  • 20 g cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces then put into a large bowl and set aside.
  • Pour the cream, ‘nduja and sugar into a blender and blitz until smooth.
  • Pour the ‘nduja cream into a small saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring intermittently. Rest for a minute so as not to scorch the chocolate.
  • Pour the ‘nduja cream over the chocolate pieces and stir together so the chocolate melts completely into the cream, turning into a thick ganache.
  • Rest the ganache in the fridge for one hour to achieve a rolling consistency.
  • Remove the ganache from the fridge and shape your truffles by rolling into about 15 small balls in your hands.
  • To finish roll the truffles in a dusting of cocoa powder.

Notes

  • You can coat the truffles in tempered chocolate if you like instead of the cocoa powder by following these instructions. It’s a bit more involved but would make for an even more impressive truffle.
