Ingrdients (25 pieces)

  • 200 gr/ 7 oz dark chocolate, high cocoa content
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 150 ml/ 6 fl oz sour cream, high-density, 35% butterfat
  • 100 gr/ 3.5 oz dried cranberry
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp butter at room temperature
  • cocoa powder for dusting
In bowl chop the chocolate in very small pieces to melt easily and quickly.
In a saucepan, heat the cream and honey over medium heat until simmer.
Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let it stand for 1 minute, until it starts to melt.
Stir gently to melt the chocolate and mix the ingredients.
Add the butter and stir.
We try and bring the desired flavor by adding 1 teaspoon icing sugar, bearing in mind that in the final result, the cocoa powder gets a little bitter.
Finally add dried cranberry to the mix.
Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator for 1½ - 2 hours for the mixture to get thick but easily molded.
Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and use a spoon to take a piece of the mixture. Mold it with our palms into small balls, and put it on a baking sheet.
When we finish with the mixture, put back in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Remove and sprinkle over the cocoa powder with a sieve.
Shake the excess cocoa using a colander.
Keep them in the refrigerator.
