Plain and Hazelnuts Chocolate Truffles

Plain and Hazelnuts Chocolate Truffles
 I am a Buddhist but when Christmas comes, I will bake for my
Christian friends.  Last year, I baked Fruit Cake and for this year, 
I will make Chocolate Truffles.
Something sweet and chocolatey for my friends and their families
to enjoy this delicious dessert during this festive season.

Wishing my wonderful Christian friends and all of you in this
wonderful world a "Merry Christmas".  
May the season warm your soul, bring love
to your heart and bless you with everything this life has to offer.

 550g Semi Sweet Chocolate
350ml Double Cream
2 Egg Yolks
50g Butter
Some Whole or Ground Hazelnuts 
Some Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

 From left to right :-
Double Cream / Egg Yolks / Semi Sweet Chocolate / Butter

 Bring cream to boil.  Once you see the bubble surface, turn off the fire.

 Add in the yolks and stir until combined.

 Add in the semi sweet chocolate.

And stir until well combined or until all the chocolate melted and smooth.

 Lastly, add in the butter and stir until melted and smooth.

Once done, leave it to cool.  Cover and chill for 10 hours.

 After 10 hours, use a small scoop to make into balls.
Remember to chill it again if the mixture become too soft to handle.

Drop the truffles into the cocoa powder to coat well (like the picture above)
or (like the picture below) with ground hazelnuts.
When each truffle coated well with cocoa powder or ground hazelnuts,
place it into a small paper liner.

Once done, place into a gift box and chill all the time.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Hi Amy,

We are free-thinkers here with a little more inclination to Buddhism. Nevertheless, we like to celebrate all occasions :D

Your chocolate truffles look yummy! It must be hard to stop at one :D

Merry Christmas and Happy 2014 to you and your family.
