Chocolate Truffles

I made these a week ago and it was worth a try!
Truffles are the most divine and delicious candies. Delicate and pure, they melt in your mouth and leave you and your guest speechless! And they are easy and most simplest to make. But you have to make sure that you use Good high quality chocolate and cocoa.

Dark chocolate 8.8 oz/250 g
Cream 165 ml/5.8 oz
Butter 1.2 oz
Water 2 tbsp
High quality cocoa powder 1 and a 1/2 cup

In a bowl take 2 tbsp water and add chopped chocolate and melt it in a double boiler till 8 minutes, it shouldn't be dull in colour. Add cream mix gently with heat on. Once mixed remove from heat and let it cool. Now add butter to ganache put the mixture back in double boiler. After few minutes remove from heat, put the ganache in a bowl and refrigerate it for 8 hours.
After 8 hours this mixture hardens. Using two spoons form even and round balls and roll them in cocoa powder. Refrigerate for another 1 hour.
