Ingredients for Earl Grey Chocolate Truffles

  • 120ml double cream
  • 2tsps of Earl Grey tea
  • 225 grams high-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 30 grams unsalted butter
  • 30 grams cocoa powder
  • 30 grams finely chopped nuts (such as almonds or hazelnuts) or dried lavender petals (for decoration)


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the double cream and 2tsps of Earl Grey tea until it’s simmering, then remove it from heat. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and discard the loose tea leaves.
  2. Place the finely chopped dark chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl.
  3. Reheat the tea-infused cream until it’s hot but not boiling. Pour it over the chocolate and butter. Allow it to sit for a minute to melt the chocolate and butter.
  4. Gently stir the mixture until it’s smooth and well combined. This should create a silky, glossy ganache.
  5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the ganache for about 2 hours or until it’s firm enough to handle.
  6. Once the ganache is set, use a spoon or a melon baller to scoop out small portions and roll them into bite-sized truffle balls.
  7. Roll each truffle in cocoa powder or chopped nuts/lavender petals for decoration.
  8. Place the truffles on a tray lined with parchment paper and chill them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  9. Enjoy when removed from fridge and warmed to room temperature.
