How to Make Chocolate Almond Truffle

  • Mix the ground almonds, icing sugar, and chocolate powder in a bowl.
  • Put the egg yolk into a cup, add a few drops of evaporated milk, beat together, and then add a few drops of vanilla essence or 1/2 tsp of coffee essence.
  • Put this into the basin of mixture and using your hands, mix it into a soft dough. Leave this to get very cold; you could pop it into the fridge for half an hour.
  • Sprinkle a large sheet of greaseproof paper with a little more chocolate powder, or vanilla vermicelli is better to use if you have any.
  • Shape the mixture into small balls and roll them in the powder or vermicelli.
  • If you have any paper cases, put the truffles into them.
