Chai-spiced chocolate truffles are the perfect mix between fudge and soft caramel. Rich and decadent with dark chocolate and intensely fragrant from the sharp notes of warm spices, these bite-sized delicacies are fabulous for gifting.

200gmsCoconut creamYou can use regular cream too.
2tspChai Masala/ Chai Spice Powder
400gmsDark chocolateMake sure the chocolate is at room temperature.
2tbspCocoa powder, for rolling the truffles
In a small saucepan, barely warm the cream. Add the chai spice.
Let the cream and spice infuse for 15 minutes. For a more potent flavor, let the cream infuse for 30-60 minutes.
Now you can strain the cream or use it as is. I chose to use it unstrained.
Reheat the cream to a bare warm again and add in the chocolate. Gently stir till all chocolate is melted and is smooth and shiny.
Transfer to a shallow bowl and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes. Using a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon, scoop out small balls.
I like to refrigerate these for 10-15 minutes. Roll into smooth balls and refrigerate again for a few minutes.
Roll the truffles in cocoa powder, serve immediately and enjoy!
