Chocolate Truffles

PS. To help you get in the Christmas spirit, why don't you try this yummy recipe for Chocolate Truffles which has kindly been given to us by Josh Guild who is living with EB. Enjoy!

Ingredients

For the truffles

250g of dark chocolate

700g of cooked Christmas pudding (crumbled)

5 tablespoons of grape juice

75g of icing sugar

For decoration

Icing sugar for dusting

200g of green sugar paste

100g of red sugar paste

200g of white chocolate

Method

1. Put the chocolate in a heat proof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water and leave to melt, stirring occasionally.

2. Stir the melted chocolate and the crumbled Christmas pudding pieces together whilst adding the grape juice. Sift in the icing sugar and mix together. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate until the mixture is firm.

3. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Break off a piece of the mixture and roll it into a small ball, place on baking tray and repeat until you have used up all the mixture.  Leave in the fridge to cool.

4. Dust your work surface with a little icing sugar and roll out the green sugar paste to about 5mm thick. Using a holly leaf shaped cutter, cut out enough leaves so you have a pair for each truffle. Use a cocktail stick to decorate the leaves. Take the red sugar paste and roll small balls for the holly berries, making enough so you have two berries for each truffle.

5. Melt the white chocolate as described in step 1. Take the truffles out of the fridge and pour a teaspoonful of the melted white chocolate over each one, letting the chocolate drip down the sides. Press a pair of leaves and pair of berries on top of each truffle while the chocolate is still soft. Set aside until the chocolate sets.
