chocolate truffles, such good company for coffee. the best ones are homemade. try, it's dead easy.colin cooke via taverne agency and recipe: paul lowe, after the break
makes about 30
225 ml whipping cream
450 g good quality dark chocolate

in a saucepan, slowly bring the cream to a boil.
place the chocolate and amaretto in a bowl and pour the cream over.
stir gently to dissolve the chocolate.

when the mixture is set, use a spoon to scrape teaspoonsized balls.
use your hands to roll them into balls (messy, but fun and you can always
