Prep Time

15 minutes

Chilling Time

30 minutes

These are perfect as an after dinner treat or an afternoon pick-me-up with a coffee. The beer taste is subtle and adds a different flavour to a traditional truffle recipe.

Ingredients

  • 200g Divine 70% Dark Chocolate
  • 200g Divine Milk Chocolate
  • 50g Fairtrade muscovado light brown sugar
  • 125g Toast Ale
  • 100g Divine Cocoa Powder

Method

1

Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl over simmering water. Stir until all of the chocolate has melted.

2

In another saucepan, add the sugar and ale. Over a low heat stir until the sugar has completely dissolved.

3

Add the ale to the chocolate and use a stick blender to make a smooth glossy mixture.

4

Pour into a shallow baking tray and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

5

Once the chocolate has cooled, it should be a scoop-able consistency. Use a small spoon to gather a grape sized amount of chocolate and form into a ball with your fingertips.

6

Drop into the cocoa powder and coat completely.
