Fancy some chocolate? Bet you do. So, instead of nipping into your local super store for your fix. Head for the kitchen, don your apron & rustle up some gorgeous chocs that contain good quality ingredients and do not contain those nasty additives, colourings & sack loads of added sugar.
DARK & WHITE STRAWBERRY TRUFFLES. No added sugar, Gluten Free. Makes 50 Truffles.
50g Unsalted butter.
150ml Double Cream
450g Good quality White Chocolate (I use Callebaut)
3 Tbspns Flavouring of your choice. Liqueur, Fruit puree, etc
Pour the cream into a heavy based saucepan, over a gentle heat,. Bring to the boil.
Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly & add the chopped chocolate & flavouring.
Stir constantly until the chocolate has melted & combined with the other ingredients.
Pour into a bowl, allow to cool & become firm.
Break off small pieces & roll into balls, at this stage you can roll the truffle centres in nuts, grated dark chocolate or whatever takes your imagination.
Or you can temper some dark chocolate & dip the centres, leaving them to cool & harden on non stick baking parchment,
When they are set, drizzle with more melted white chocolate, to decorate.
Happy Truffling Foodies. Until next time, have a sweet time.
