A Chocolate Truffle is a . .

A Chocolate Truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache centre coated in chocolate, icing sugar, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts (typically hazelnuts, almonds or coconut), usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape. 
The word Ganache means ... It is a glaze, icing, sauce, or filling for pastries made from chocolate and cream. Ganache is normally made by heating cream, then pouring it over chopped chocolate of any kind. The mixture is stirred or blended until smooth, with liqueurs or extracts added if desired.
An easy to make Chocolate truffle.
Start with chopping the chocolate and put into a large bowl.
Put cream and butter into a thick bottom saucepan and heat gently until the butter melts and the cream starts to simmer.
Then take off the heat and pour over the chocolate.
Stir the chocolate and cream together until looks a smooth mixture. Add any flavorings to the truffle mix at this point.
