Gü chocolate truffles recipe
Makes about 25
- For the truffles:
- 175g dark chocolate (About 70% coacoa solids), broken into small pieces
- 200ml whipping cream
- 50g unsalted cream
- 50g unsalted butter
- A little cocoa powder, for rolling
- To coat the truffles:
- 200g dark chocolate (about 70% coacoa solids), melted
- 1 quantity Citrus Dust
To make the truffles, put the chocolate pieces into a heatproof bowl.
Pour the cream into a saucepan and bring it to the boil. Pour it over the chocolate and stir with a spatula until the chocolate has melted and become smooth. (If you have a stick blender, then use this to blitz the mixture to make it super smooth.)
Leave to cool for about 15 minutes, or to room temperature, then pinch off pieces of butter and beat into the chocolate mixture until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a bowl, cover and chill in the fridge for 4-5 hours (or overnight) until the mixture has completely set.
Use a teaspoon to scoop out small spoonfuls of the truffle mix onto a baking tray or plate. Place the truffles back in the fridge to set for 10-15 minutes.
Dust the palm of your hand with a little cocoa powder and roll each piece into a neat ball. Place the truffles back in the fridge to set once more for 10-15 minutes.
To coat the truffles, let the melted chocolate cool slightly and then put some of it on your hands. Roll the truffles one by one in your hands and then put them onto some baking parchment.
Leave them in the fridge to set and scatter over the citrus dust before serving.
