How To Make Fennel Seed and Chocolate Truffles

Rich, bite-sized chocolate truffles with a subtle licorice flavor from fennel seeds.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 8 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder


  1. In a small saucepan, heat heavy cream and fennel seeds over medium heat until small bubbles form around the edges.

  2. Remove from heat, cover, and let steep for 10 minutes.

  3. Strain cream through a fine-mesh sieve into a heatproof bowl and discard fennel seeds.
