 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
  150      ml            double cream
  400      g             bitter chocolate -- broken small pieces
    4      tbsp          unsalted butter -- softened
                         best quality unsweetened cocoa powder

 1. In a saucepan, boil the double cream until reduced to 2 tbsp. Remove 
 from heat and stir in the chocolate until melted. Add the butter and stir 
 gently, then pour on to a large flat plate. Put in the fridge for 45 
 minutes until chilled and set.
 
 2. With a teaspoon, scrape across the chocolate so that it forms a rough 
 truffle shape in large curls, not balls! Roll them in dry cocoa powder. 
 Chill in fridge for at least half and hour before serving.
