Easter truffles
Make your favourite truffle in a delightful homemade birds nest.

150ml double cream

100g dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces

100g milk chocolate, chopped into small pieces

2 tbsp cocoa powder

50g chopped hazelnuts

Edible glitter, icing sugar (optional)

Heat the cream in a pan until hot then remove from the heat for one minute.

Add the dark and milk chocolates to the pan, and stir until melted through and smooth.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and chill in the fridge until firm.

When the chocolate is firm, use 2 teaspoons to scoop out the truffles.

Roll half the truffles in the cocoa powder and the other half in hazelnuts or edible glitter.

Place the truffles in and pop into an empty egg box or make a nest with straw, hay or shredded coloured paper.
