  • Sifted icing sugar for rolling


In a small saucepan, pour the cream and bring it to the boil.

Remove from heat and add the chocolate. Stir it continuously until it is all melted and you have a creamy smooth consistency.

Set aside to cool for 3 hours.

When cooled and set, cover your hands in icing sugar and roll teaspoon sized balls. Roll in cocoa.


  • These are so delectable and rich! If you love chocolate these are for you. You will be amazed how easy they are to make.
  • You will need to make allowances for the temperature in the room you are making these in. You may need to give them a stint in the fridge to set if it's very hot where you live.
  • You can roll these in a few different coatings. Try crushed pitachio nuts or coconut for something different.
