Hazelnut Chocolate Truffles!

Chocolate is my guilty pleasure and i adore truffles. These are quick(ish) and easy to make and far better value for money and healthier than buying them.


-100g dark chocolate (atleast 70% cocoa),
-1 tbsp honey,
-2 tbsp strong coffee,
chopped hazelnuts to roll them in.


1. Melt the chocolate, i did mine in my microwave but be careful you don't burn it!
2. Stir in the honey and coffee slowly, it will start to thicken and seem like it's not mixing properly but just keep going, it will soon turn glossy.
3. Put it in the fridge for 15-30 mins until it is nearly hard. Then remove it from the fridge.
4. Get a teaspoon and scoop out a small ball of chocolate and roll it into a truffle shape.
5. Roll the truffles in the hazelnuts and place in a jar and store in the fridge.
6. Enjoyyy :)

Of course you can use alternatives but they won't be as healthy. You can use whatever chocolate you want and sub the hazelnuts for cocoa powder if you don't like nuts. If you use milk chocolate with the hazelnuts they make a great gift and taste like Ferrero Rocher!
