As the festive season draws closer, these cute Rudolph Truffles are just what you need to get in the mood for Christmas.  They’re perfect for a Christmas party, or to be wrapped and put under the tree.

Overall time needed: 4.5 hours (including 4 hours chill time)

This recipe will make 50 truffles

Ingredients:

  • 300g dark chocolate (I would recommend Asda’s Smartprice Chocolate – only 35p per 100g but is just as delicious as any premium brand!)
  • 300ml pot double cream
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 1 packet of twiglets
  • Mini cupcake cases
  • Coloured writing icing

Method:

  1. Break the chocolate into a large glass bowl.  Pour the cream and butter into the bowl and heat on a low heat over a saucepan full of boiling water.  Stir until you have a smooth mixture.
  2. Cool for 4 hours in the fridge.
  3. To shape the truffles into balls, use a melon baller to scoop out the mixture.  To make them perfectly rounded you can use your hands at this stage.  Place in the mini  cupcake cases.
  4. Break the twiglets in half and gently poke them into the truffles to create the antlers
  5. Use green writing icing to add the eyes, and red icing for the noses.
  6. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3 days. Enjoy!
