Double Chocolate Caramel Truffles from our Foodie Girl Mia

Our foodie girl MIA is back with us today for a DELICIOUS truffle recipe. 
 This is one of those recipes that is easy to whip up, but looks impressive on a plate!
 I am TOTALLY drooling over these Mia - YUMMO!


We can always fall into our usual routines of making the boring food because it's "tradition"! Let's all jump out of those comfort zones with a super easy recipe which is absolutely divine. I've been making these truffles for the past few years, and my Uncle has learnt to help me in the kitchen to make sure they're done in time for him to eat them while watching his afternoon TV. I guess I've made a sort of tradition myself, so hopefully you'll love them as much as my family!


50g dark chocolate, chopped

400g milk chocolate, chopped

195g dulce de leche (if you can't find it just use a thick caramel sauce)

1 tsp vanilla essence

142ml double cream

cocoa powder and chocolate sprinkles to roll the truffles in


Melt the dulce de leche in a pan for a minute, then stir in the chopped up dark chocolate.


Cover a dinner plate with cling film and rub some oil to stop the chocolate and dulce de leche mix from sticking, and pour over the mix.


Spread out the mix and pop it in the freezer for 2 hours to solidify.


Now we need to make the outside of the truffles:
Put the cream in a pan and cook for a couple of minutes until it is about to come to a boil.
Add the chopped up milk chocolate and mix until it has melted in, then add the vanilla essence. 
Transfer into a bowl and cool in a fridge for the remaining time.


After the 2 hours is up, get everything together on the worktop and get another plate and dust with the cocoa powder.
 Get a thumbnail- sized amount of the freezer mix, and wrap the fridge mix around it.


I get super warm hands doing this job so I washed them a few times, then dusted my hands each time with the cocoa powder 
when dry to prevent the truffles from melting easily! Roll into balls, then roll them around in the cocoa powder on the plate.


I put the finished truffles into a dish at the side after this as they accumulated pretty fast... 
Pop them in the fridge to harden up again for a bit, better check how solid they are before giving them to guests so make sure you try one first!


And there we go! Not too difficult, right? Let me know how you get on in the comments section below!
