Chop chocolate. Combine cream and butter in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove cream from heat; add chocolate, stirring until chocolate is melted and smooth.

Cover the mixture and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until firm enough to handle.

Using your fingers, a small melon ball scoop or spoon, shape into small balls. Roll the balls in the cocoa or icing sugar then place on parchment lined baking sheet or tray; cover and refrigerate until firm.

Truffles can be refrigerated for a couple of weeks or frozen for a couple of months.
