heat very gently until the chocolate has melted.
Remove the bowl from the pan and beat in the butter, bit by bit.
Leave the mixture in a cool place until quite firm.

between the palms of your hands.
Take a teaspoon of the mixture and roll into a ball between the palms of your hands.
Roll in cocoa and put on a tray. Continue till all mixture is used up.
Put the finished truffles into the fridge to firm up.
