  • 500 ml double cream Original mentioned half double, and half single
  • A small bunch of mint
  • 500 gm Dark Chocolate I used 70% Dark chocolate
  • 130 gm Butter diced
  • 130 gm Honey

For the Coating (Any of the below)

  • Cocoa Powder
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Chopped Pistachio


  • In a clean pot add in the cream.
  • Smash the mint springs with a wooden spoon or slightly in a mortar and pestle just to release the fragrance.
  • On slow heat the cream along with mint for 5-6 minutes until you see the mixture starts boiling.
  • In the meantime, break or cut the chocolate into small pieces.
  • Add this in another heat proof bowl.
  • Add in the butter and honey.
  • Strain the hot cream and mint mixture into this discarding the mint sprigs.
  • Cover it lightly and leave it for 5-10 minutes until the mixture gets a bit cold.
  • Now slowly mix the mixture till all the butter is melted and you get a smooth glossy mixture.
  • Cover and chill this until form for 1 hour or more.
  • After an hour, in separate bowls, add the toppings of your choice.
  • Take a tablespoon of the chocolate mixture and form a sphere shape.
  • Immediately roll that in cocoa powder, or pistachio or mix or the topping of your choice.
  • You need to be quick in the rolling, as the chocolate will start to melt.
  • If you are storing the truffles, place them in an air tight container and refrigerate for 3-4 days.


  • You really need to be quick with respect to rolling of the truffles, as a good quality chocolate will start melting.
  • The butter should not be melted.
