Hot Cross Bun Choc Truffles

PREP: 25MINS | COOK: 5 HRS| MAKES: 30

What you’ll need…

3 hot cross buns (a few days old is best)

150g Sunbeam Australian Sultanas

2 tbsp Angas Park mixed peel

2 tsp mixed spice

90ml thickened cream

300g milk chocolate, roughly chopped

150g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

20g Dutch cocoa powder

100g white chocolate

Method

Combine hot cross buns, sultanas, mixed peel and mixed spice in a food processor and blend until a fine crumb. 

Combine dark and milk chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about 2 mins (stopping every 30 seconds and stirring) until the chocolate is completely melted. 

Add melted chocolate mixture to the food processor and blend until combined.  Transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours until firm enough to spoon. 

Spoon mixture into 2 tablespoon sized portions then roll into balls.  Roll in cocoa powder, dusting off excess powder.  Line a baking tray with baking paper, place balls onto the tray and refrigerate for 30 mins to harden.

Place white chocolate into a small, microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 min, stopping every 20 seconds to stir, or until completely melted.  Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a piping bag fitted with a small, round nozzle. 

Pipe a cross (to resemble a hot cross bun) onto the tops of each ball then return to fridge for a further 30 mins to set.
