Instructions
  1. Gradually heat the whipping cream using a bain-marie (hot water bath).
  2. Meanwhile, break the chocolate bars into small pieces. We recommend using dark bittersweet chocolate but you can also use sweet or milk chocolate.
  3. Stir the whipping cream with a spatula 2 to 3 times. Just before it begins to boil, remove and place onto a trivet. Add the chocolate pieces to the cream.
  4. Mix thoroughly and dissolve the chocolate. We used 36% fat whipping cream for this recipe. The light whipping cream has a rich flavor and also causes less separation. Gently mix to keep it from separating.
  5. When it is smooth, add the brandy or rum and continue to mix.
  6. Remove the bowl from the bain-marie and allow it to sit to cool. When cooled, firm up the chocolate completely in the fridge or freezer.
  7. The nama chocolate is completely firm. Using a spoon, shape the chocolate into a small ball and then place it into a glassine paper candy cup.
  8. Repeat the process and now you have 4 pieces of nama chocolate. Sprinkle on the cocoa powder.
  9. Finally, place them into a truffle box.
Recipe Notes
  • Nama chocolate might separate for various reasons so we recommend making a small amount for your first time and following each step shown in the video.
