Rich Chocolate Truffles
These are just perfect for after a fabulous meal when serving a dessert is just too much but a sweet bite or two is just right. Our Limited Edition Golden Ruby Grapefruit Flavour Pearls add a touch of luxurious glamour and the sour flavour cuts beautifully through the rich chocolate.
What you’ll need… (around 20 truffles)
- 60 ml Cream
- 150 g Dark Chocolate – Chopped (Lindt 70% is quite nice and easy to work with)
- 1 tbsp butter – soft
- Cocoa Powder – to roll them in (I like the Callebaut brand if you can find it)
- Golden Ruby Grapefruit Flavour Pearls
Heat the cream until it just comes to the boil. Add chopped chocolate and remove from heat. Let it sit for a few minutes then stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
Add in the soft butter and stir until smooth. This is also known as a ganache.
Put the mix into a bowl and cover with glad wrap. Makes sure the wrap sticks to the entire surface of the ganache.
Refrigerate overnight or until ganache is set.
To form the truffles, use a melon baller or teaspoon to get even scoops. Roll the ganache into a ball and place on greaseproof paper. This is super messy – you might want to pop them in the fridge for a bit to firm up again before you re-roll a little then roll finished truffles in unsweetened cocoa powder.
Ready to serve…
Find a pretty serving plate and simply make a bit of a tower with your Chocolate Truffles. If you make a little indent in a few of them it will make it a little easier to add your delicious garnish of Golden Ruby Grapefruit Flavour Pearls to finish. We have also added some Gold Leaf.
