50g/2oz plain chocolate chopped,use the good stuff.
30ml/2tbsp single cream
100g/4oz icing sugar, sifted

Chocolate ,grated/coconut grated .


1.Heat the 50g chocolate in bain marie.
2.When melted remove and beat in the cream.
3.Gradually work in the icing sugar and grated coocnut.
4.Cover and chill until firm enough to handle.
5. Form into balls, coat 6 truffles iin the grated chocolate ,the remainder in grated coconut.

Sit back and enjoy.
