Got some older chocolate that's lost it's smooth taste? Here's a super simple way to revive it, transforming it into impressive chocolate truffles with this 5-minute recipe (not including the 2 hours waiting!)


  • 100g chocolate, ideally ‘single origin’  
  • A sprinkle of sea salt 
  • cocoa powder, to dust 


1. Line a small container with unbleached parchment paper.

2. Finely chop 100g chocolate into small pieces and place into a bowl, zero the scales and add 50ml of boiling water too.

3. Set aside for 1 minute, then gently stir until the chocolate has melted.

4. Pour into the container. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and refrigerate for two hours, or until set.

5. Turn out onto a chopping board, cut into rectangular pieces and dust with cocoa powder to finish.
