For this truffle recipe, we have used Cotteswold Dairy Organic cream but any of our cream range would work well. Why not try it with Roddas Brandy Clotted Cream for a little extra, grown-up, extravagance this Christmas?

These truffles are so easy to make and a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen in the lead-up to the big day!

Cotteswold Dairy Cream and ingredients for Chocolate Truffles

You will need:


200g Dark chocolate

100g Fruit Cake Slice, icing removed and cake crumbled

200g Milk Chocolate, melted

50g White Chocolate, melted

Makes 20 truffles

Step 1

Place the dark chocolate and cream in a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Use a spoon to stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Add the fruit cake and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2 hours or until the mixture is firm.

Step 2

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Roll 2-tsp portions of the mixture into balls. Place on the lined tray and put into the fridge for 1 hour to set.

Step 3

Melt the Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate in separate bowls. Using a fork, dip 1 truffle at a time into the milk chocolate, shaking off excess. Transfer to a lined tray. Repeat with the remaining truffles. Using a small spoonful of melted White Chocolate, drizzle over the Milk Chocolate-coated truffles. Put into the fridge to set until firm. Enjoy!


Truffles will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
