This is a great one for children to make. It's simple and, best of all, lots of fun.

RECIPE: Truffles
Makes about 12-18

100g good-quality chocolate, melted
100ml double cream, room temperature
dash of your favourite alcohol (Baileys, rum, champagne)

You can use cocoa powder, praline, chopped nuts, coconut, gold leaf or sprinkles.

In a bowl mix together melted chocolate and cream, stirring until well combined. Add a dash of the alcohol and mix in. Transfer to a plastic container and pop it into the fridge overnight. Remove truffle mix from the fridge and, using a tablespoon or melon-baller, scoop out a walnut-size amount of mix and roll it into a ball. Pop it into a bowl of your favourite coating and cover truffle well, then transfer to a tray or plastic container. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
