When I am down, I make these simple chocolate truffles. They are soft and creamy and taste divine. Eat one or two and the world becomes a wonderful place. I love the subtle almond flavor from the amaretto.

Makes about 30

You will need:
1 cup heavy cream
1 pound good quality dark chocolate
1 tablespoon amaretto
Cocoa powder
  1. Have cream in a saucepan and bring slowly to a boil.
  2. Place the chocolate and amaretto in a bowl and pour the cream over.
  3. Stir gently to dissolve the chocolate.
  4. Leave to cool.
  5. When the mixture is set, use a spoon to scrape teaspoon sized balls.
  6. Use your hands to roll them into balls, messy but fun. (You can always lick your fingers after).
