20 minutes, plus chilling time

  • 140g double cream
  • 200g Espresso Madecasse chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp finely ground black pepper

Heat the cream in a saucepan and simmer for 2 minutes. Take off the heat and stir in the chocolate, stirring until it melts completely. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and chill for 1 hour only.

On a large plate, combine the cocoa powder and pepper, then with a teaspoon, scoop out small balls of the mixture to make your individual truffles. Roll each into the dry mixture and set on another tray. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
