Eid Gift Ideas: 3 Ways Chocolate Truffles

Gift-giving is a tradition in most Islamic cultures. You wouldn't show up at someone's home for dinner without a small gift for the hostess or children.  For Eid-al-Fitr, and Eid-al-Adha gifts take on a more celebratory role.  In Islamic countries the practice of gift giving during these holidays is largely based on giving children gifts.  It makes the event feel festive.

  2. Place heavy cream in a small saucepan, bring to a simmer over low-medium heat.
  3. Pour the cream over the chocolate, let sit for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, until set.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop or a spoon, scoop a small portion of the chocolate mixture and form small balls by rolling between your hands. Arrange the balls on a baking sheet or a big plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll again between your hands to create smooth balls.
  5. Roll the balls in the cocoa powder.
