250g Dark Chocolate
1/2 Cup | 125ml Heavy Cream
1 tsp Peppermint Essence
150g White Chocolate Chips
150g Dark Chocolate Chips
2-3 Candy Canes

Chop of break the dark chocolate up into small pieces and place into a medium sized bowl.

Pour in the peppermint essence and mix again until combined.
Cover and place the truffle mixture into the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight.
After 6 hours scoop out the chocolate using a cookie scoop and roll into balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper so the truffles don’t stick.
Place the truffles into the freezer for at least 30 minutes until firm.
Melt the white and dark chocolate and dip the truffles in to coat. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes and leave to set before serving.
