These fun 4-ingredient truffles are super easy to make and would make a perfect holiday gift for both sprout lovers and haters!

Time 4 hours (including chilling time)
Servings 25 truffles
- 100ml Double Cream
- 600g White Chocolate (300g for the truffles, 300g for the green sprout decoration)
- 100g Biscuits - I used Gingernuts
- 1 teaspoon Ground Ginger (Optional)
- A few drops of green food colouring - I used ProGel in Lime Green
- Crush the biscuits to a fine crumb in a food processor, or using a sealed sandwich bag and a rolling pin also works!
- Add 300g of white chocolate (broken in to small pieces) and double cream to a saucepan and gently heat on a low-medium heat until smooth. This might take a couple of minutes, so be patient!
- When no lumps remain, take off the heat, and give the ganache a good stir to ensure it's smooth and silky. Mix in the crushed biscuits and then pour the ganache in to a heatproof bowl or shallow dish (I used a glass pyrex dish) and then chill in the fridge until set (approx 2-3 hours, or overnight).
- Line a couple of baking trays / plates with greaseproof/parchment paper. Take the ganache out of the fridge and use the palms of your hands to roll sprout sized truffles (I made 25). Place them on the lined trays / plates. Put the truffles back in the fridge or in the freezer to cool for 30 minutes.
- When the truffles are ready to come out of the freezer prepare the white chocolate coating - melt the remaining 300g of white chocolate in the microwave in a bowl in 10 second bursts until smooth. Transfer half of the melted white chocolate to a seperate bowl and add green food colouring to one of the bowls of chocolate and leave the other white. Set the green white chocolate aside.
- Take the truffles out of the fridge / freezer and coat each in the white chocolate, (using your hands as we want a nice bumpy sprout texture!) shaking off any excess and placing back on to the baking trays / plates.
- Repeat this process coating the truffles in the green white chocolate. Place the truffles on to the lined trays / plates and put in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up. Enjoy!
- - These truffles will keep for 1-2 weeks stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.
