Prepare the Truffle Mixture

  • Dice up the dark chocolate and butter into small cubes.
  • Place the dark chocolate cubes, butter cubes and thickened cream into a microwave safe bowl.
  • Microwave in 30 second intervals until the mixture is fully melted.
  • Thoroughly mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Cover the bowl and let the mixture sit at room temperature for approximately 30 minutes to cool.

Mould the Truffle

With a Silicone Egg Mould

  • Transfer the mixture into a piping bag.
  • Fill an egg mould to the top and scrape off any excess with a spatula or knife.
  • Place the mould in the freezer and allow to set for 1 hour.
  • Apply a small amount of Truffle mixture to the centre of your egg halves, place a toothpick in the centre and glue together to create one whole egg.

Without a Mould:

  • Put the Truffle mixture into the fridge and allow to set for 2 hours
  • Once set, shape the mixture into an egg form with your hands
  • Slide a toothpick into the base of your egg
  • Return the shaped eggs to the fridge to set for another hour.
