Makes 20 truffles


  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 3 Nerada Earl Grey tea bags
  • 1 tbs unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 250g good-quality dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cocoa powder


  1. Put the cream, tea bags, butter and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, then remove the tea bags. Put the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl, pour over the hot cream mixture and stir gently until smooth and combined.
  2. Stir in the vanilla, then whisk until smooth and shiny. Transfer to a shallow container, cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 3 hours or up to overnight.

Transfer the truffles to the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour or up to overnight. Keep in the fridge.
