½ teaspoon groundnut oil

A little cocoa for dusting

Using a heat proof bowl, melt the chocolate and the oil over hot but not boiling water.

Then remove the pan from the heat.

Layer grease proof paper over a work surface and dusting your hands with the cocoa, roll each truffle into a little ball.

Using two flat skewers, one to spike the truffle and one to manoeuvre it, dip each truffle in the chocolate and or coconut so that it gets a thin coating and then quickly transfer it to the paper.

If the chocolate begins to thicken replace the pan on the heat so that it will liquefy again.

Leave the coated truffles to set completely.
