Margarita Truffles

Margarita Truffles

  • Author: foodnerd4life
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 35 Truffles 1x


Makes more if you don’t eat the mixture as you go!



  • 235 ml Double Cream
  • 3 Limes (zested finely)
  • 45 ml Tequila (as good as you can afford)
  • Pinch of Sea Salt Flakes (not table)
  • 300 g Dark Chocolate (I went for a 70% cocoa solids)



  1. In a large bowl, pour in the cream and lime zest, place over a pan of simmering water to heat the cream through to warm and the lime zest has infused the cream.
  2. When the cream is nice and warm, add the tequila, chocolate and salt. Mix till you have a sexy smooth ganache. Leave to cool at room temperature before cooling in the fridge for 30 minutes. Zest the last lime and set aside to air dry for decorating later.
  3. I donned some beautiful food gloves to roll my truffles, means you won’t be covering yourself and your kitchen with as many chocolatey fingerprints!
  4. After you got your rolling out of the way, melt the remaining chocolate. Using a fork, dip a truffle a time letting the excess dribble off before placing the coated truffle on parchment paper. Top each truffle with a little of the dried lime zest, before coating the rest of the ganache.  If you can leave them to set – or coat one, eat one, coat one, eat one….
