Chocolate Truffles

These are really easy to make chocolate truffles which make great gifts. This basic recipe came from the little magazine that my local health food co-op The Eighth Day publish. I've made many variations over the years such as chocolate orange (with orange brandy and candied peel added), chocolate mint with some mint extract and white chocolate and whisky.

Chocolate Truffles
Makes about 20 truffles

100g plain chocolate
50g vegan margarine
1 tablespoon of dark rum or strong coffee
25g of ground almonds
1 tablespoon of soya cream
150g icing sugar
Cocoa powder to dust

Melt the chocolate and margarine together. Mix in the rum/coffee and cream, then the icing sugar and ground almonds.

Refrigerate until firm. Shape into balls and roll in cocoa powder.
