Edible gifts on Mothers Day can be amazing, and nothing says love like homemade, so why not gift your Mum a box of these chocolate liqueur truffles this Mothers day or even better, make them together. Homemade chocolates truffles might sound like a tricky task, but they’re honestly super simple to make. They might be a little on the messy side although that’s part of the fun. Unlike regular truffles, these melt-in-your-mouth chocolates are vegan and gluten free.
Prep: 1 hr
Yields: Approximately 15 truffles
1Melt the cacao butter until liquid – you can do this in a small pan over a low heat on the hob or a small bowl in the microwave for a couple of minutes
2Once the cacao butter has melted, pour into a bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients until a smooth, thick ganache has formed
3Place the bowl in the fridge for 45-minutes - 1 hour. Meanwhile place each of the coatings into three separate bowls.
4When the ganache has set, remove from the fridge. Scoop a truffle using the small end of a melon baller or tsp. (approx. 15g per truffle). Shape and roll the truffle in one of the coatings until covered.
5Place the finished truffle onto a baking sheet and repeat the process with the rest of truffle mixture.
6When all of the truffles have been made, return to the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up. Store in an airtight container.
