Set aside and keep warm.
Bring the cream to the boil and pour onto the chocolate whisking briskly with a balloon whisk.
Add the butter and whisk again.
Pour the mixture into a dish lined with nonstick baking parchment, to a depth of 2 cm / 3/4 inch.
Chill in the refrigerator overnight.
The next day, remove the truffle mixture from the dish and cut into 2-cm / 3/4-inch squares.
Roll into balls and coat with cocoa powder.
Some can be rolled in icing sugar for a contrast, if desired.
Chill in the refrigerator.
