Whenever we have guests over, I prefer to prepare ahead so that I get to spend quality time with them, which means do-ahead recipes ring in.. This is one of those desserts which can be done much before and tucked in the fridge. A treat for the all the chocolate lovers!!
You need –
- Heavy cream – 250 grams
- Dark chocolate (70% coco content) – 300 grams
- Unsalted butter – 20 grams
- Orange Juice – 2 tablespoons
- Cocoa powder – for coating. Sifted
Chop the chocolate and leave in a bowl. Bring the cream to a brisk simmer and pour into the chocolate. Allow the hot cream to melt the chocolate (for a minute or so). Slowly whisk the chocolate – cream mixture till smooth, thick and glossy.
Stir in the butter while the chocolate mixture is warm. Mix in the orange juice. Stir well to combine and refrigerate until firm. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll into balls using your palms. Coat each ball with cocoa powder and refrigerate to set again before you serve.
