Spiced Hot Chocolate Truffles

hot chocolate

The best thing to warm you up on a bitterly cold night is a magnificent mug of steaming hot chocolate. I make mine by rolling up chocolate ganache into small truffle-like balls, sinking two or three into a mug of warmed milk and then stirring. Dust with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg to really elevate the wintry flavour.
