Chocolate Cinnamon Balls

Warming cinnamon lost in rich, dark chocolate.

Hari says

I spend most of my days thinking up new ways to eat chocolate. So here’s another. We all know that cinnamon and chocolate work beautifully together and these little balls of luxury are just fab, daaaarling. So posh, so moreish and so easy to make. Work really well as after dinner petit fours, too. Get me and my French.

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 250g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
  • 125ml double cream
  • 25g butter
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 50g good-quality cocoa powder
  • pinch of cinnamon


  1. Break up the chocolate and place in a small bowl.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the cream when it is just boiling remove from the heat and add the butter. 
  3. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and add a pinch of cinnamon powder and salt.
  4. Stir to melt the chocolate then let it sit and stir again. Once it has all melted leave it to cool then cover with clingfilm and refrigerate until it has set for about an hour.
  5. Put the cocoa in bowl for rolling.
  6. Scoop out teaspoons of the set truffle mixture and roll them in your hands to make a ball.
  7. Coat them with the cocoa.
  8. Put them in the fridge to firm up for about 30 minutes then dust them in cinnamon before serving.
