Chocolate Truffles with Golden Ruby Grapefruit Flavour Pearls


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

To do…

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.

Until next time
