Chocolate Chilli Truffles

Chilli Chocolate Truffles

Treat your family and friends to homemade chocolate truffles this Christmas. They are perfect to give as party favours or to be eaten after dinner. Leave out the chillies if you don’t like them in chocolate. You can replace them with 2 tablespoons of finely chopped candied orange peel or ginger too.  These truffles are so gorgeous that when doing styling for this photo, we decided that it will be a Christmas card too………
