Calories 420kcal

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (organic)
  • 150 grams dark chocolate (organic)
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 sea salt (organic)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Begin by heating cream on a low flame but don't let it boil.
  • Start to chop your chocolate bars into small pieces.
  • Heat cream When it's simmering, add chopped chocolate to the cream and stir until combined.
  • Add the butter in as well and stir until completely melted.
  • Melt chocolate Turn the heat off and add honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Combine well Let the mixture refrigerate for about an hour.
  • You may need to stir every once in a while to ensure the butter is well distributed; it has a tendency of separating.
  • Once it's cool and hardened in the refrigerator, you can scoop some truffle batter up and roll it into a small ball, about an inch and a half in diameter.
  • You can of course make them smaller or bigger to your liking.
  • Shape into balls Place each round ball onto a plate lined with wax or parchment paper and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • Once they've hardened some more, you can give them another quick roll in your hands to smooth them out.
  • Place cocoa powder in a deep bowl and add your truffles.
  • Shake and roll the truffles gently in the cocoa powder to coat them evenly.
  • Smooth and coat in cocoa Put the truffles in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy with hot tea!
