2. Bring the cream to the boil and pour over the chocolate.  Stir gently until all the chocolate has melted.

3. Add the butter in 2 stages, and stir until its all smooth and glossy

4. Put the mixture in the fridge to set, for a minimum 3 hours or even overnight :)

5. Once set, take out the fridge. Put the coco powder in a bowl and lightly dust your hands with it.

6. Take spoonfuls of the mixture, roll into balls in your palm. Next drop them into the coco powder and turn until they are coated and place back in the fridge
