Simple, four ingredient clotted cream chocolate truffles, rolled in a cocoa dusting for the ultimate decadent finish!


Now, truffles are a luxurious and delicious treat – but in reality, they are ridiculously easy to make – and it works out so much cheaper and better when you make them yourself at home compared to buying them.

I adore to have a little pot of truffles at home all of the time – they are the perfect bitesize treat and are so rich and full of flavour that its all you need to keep you going every now and again. Currently I have Biscoff truffles lining my shelf and these beauties will be joining them shortly!

Clotted cream chocolate truffles

I have already put up a different recipe for amaretti, pistachio & rum truffles which are super delicious and have a delightful crunch to them – but these ones? They only have FOUR ingredients, and two of those are types of chocolate!

This recipe really doesn’t get any easier. Chocolate and clotted cream melted and mixed together, chilled, shaped and then coated – enter delicious and smooth clotted cream chocolate truffles!! They are silky smooth, rich yet moreish and melt in your mouth… HEAVEN!

Also, these would make the PERFECT present for someones birthday or a celebration! Just find an old jar, or small box and put a few in some tissue paper – it will look so cute and lovely!

I have sooo many truffle recipes on my blog now that there really is a flavour for everyone! We have peppermint flavour, Christmas pudding truffles and also red velvet cake truffles if you’re looking for something to impress!

  • 100 g dark chocolate preferably 70% cocoa solids
  • 100 g milk chocolate
  • 227 g tub of clotted cream
  • 35 g cocoa powder to coat, sifted


  • Melt the chocolates together in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (bain-marie) or in the microwave.
  • Mix the tub of clotted cream into the chocolate mix and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or even over night.
  • Once chilled, use a melon baller or small scoop to create truffle balls or shapes and roll each of them in the sifted cocoa powder until completely covered
  • Chill in the fridge again for a few more hours as the mixture would have softened considerably after rolling and then serve or package cutely as a present!


  • find it easier to shape my truffles with a melon baller as I find them the perfect size truffles - if you don't have one however you could try using two teaspoons to get the right amount - and then rolling them in your hands to create a ball shape.

    These were SO good – dare I say better than M&S truffles which are usually my go-to.

    I split the mixture in two, and added crushed pistachios to one batch. Love!!!

    One thing I did notice is they soften very quickly once out of the fridge. Could I up the dark choc content and reduce the milk choc content to make them a bit firmer?

      Hiya! So glad you loved them – yes this should be fine! Enjoy! x

    As truffles are basically a chocolate ganache, can this recipe be used as a chocolate buttercream icing replacement if not too set before chilling?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 17, 2023 at 11:35 am

      Hiya! It may work, though you may want to whip it first as it may be too soft! Hope this helps! x

    Hi Jane. These sound delicious so looking forward to giving them a go! Do they have to be stored in the fridge after they’ve been made or just an airtight container? Thanks x

  4. Nioamie on July 12, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Hi Jane do I need to let the chocolate cool completely before adding the clotted cream ? Thankyou

  5. Jayne Dursley on July 7, 2021 at 2:49 pm

    Can I freeze these pleas
    Regards Jayne

    Can these be coated in chocolate rather than dusted with cocoa?

  7. Hollie on February 20, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    Hiya Jane,

    These look incredible.

    Would it be ok to swap the dark chocolate for White/milk- one of the only foods I hate is dark chocolate!!

    Thank you x

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 22, 2020 at 6:06 pm

      Hiya – it’s not as simple as a straight swap unfortunately with chocolate. Milk is 2:1, and White is a 3:1 ratio, so you’ll need at least 350g for just milk, and probably 600g at least for white!

  8. Suzie Hunter on December 14, 2019 at 1:10 pm

    Do you think I could use this recipe for white chocolate truffles and just replace the milk/dark chocolate for white?

  9. P on March 5, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Hi there, if I want to make dark chocolate truffles do you think I could use only dark chocolate or would it mess up with the recipe? Thanks 🙂

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 6, 2019 at 2:25 pm

      Yes using just dark chocolate will work perfectly fine!

    • Emma Allison on September 5, 2020 at 11:44 pm

      Would using only milk chocolate be okay? 🙂 xx

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 6, 2020 at 9:14 am

      Not really – the cocoa content needs to be high to get the best end results. You would need at least 350g milk chocolate to make them set! x

    Yum! These look so delicious!! I am a sucker for truffles!!

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 22, 2015 at 8:34 am

      Thank you!! And so am I, they’re so irresistible!

  11. lydiajaneguanga on February 13, 2015 at 1:27 am

    These look awesome! Is clotted cream something easily found in grocery stores? I have to admit, I’ve never heard of it!

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 13, 2015 at 9:28 am

      Thank you so much! And I’m from the UK where for me it’s available in every big supermarket so if you’re not I’m not sure really! I’ve never really thought about it before haha sorry!!
