- 200g (7oz) 70% dark chocolate, chopped
- 200g (7oz) milk chocolate, chopped
- 200ml (7fl oz) single cream
- 1 tbsp butter
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- for the coating: desiccated coconut, cinnamon icing sugar, cocoa powder (sprinkles, chopped nuts, etc.)
Place the chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl or pan.
Warm the cream and butter together until the butter melts, but make sure the cream does not boil. Pour the warm cream mixture over the chocolate pieces and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.
Using a silicone spatula, stir the chocolate-cream mixture until you get a creamy, homogenous ganache. Stir in the cinnamon. Place the ganache into the fridge for about 2 hours to set.
Using two tablespoons, create one truffle-sized portion and quickly form a ball between your palms to avoid melting the ganache too much.
Place the ganache balls onto a clingfilm or silicone sheet-covered tray or chopping board, then place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to set.
Prepare the coating options. Take the ganache balls out of the fridge, roll them between your palms to get a smooth surface and instantly cover them with the chosen coating.
Keep them in the fridge and, for the best possible consistency, take them out and rest them at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.
