Milk & Dark Chocolate Truffles

For the next instalment of chocolate truffles, I've focused on dark chocolate and liqueur. I've left the recipe very broad to accommodate personal tastes. I would personally use Kalua (coffee flavoured). It has a deep taste that would work well with the chocolate. Alternatively, Malibu (coconut flavoured) is delicious. Don't be confined to just those - most flavours will work wonderfully. 

They add the perfect wow factor for any friends or family coming for dinner, a way to get the children into cooking or simply because you love chocolate. A crisp shell of chocolate encapsulating a smooth chocolate ganache is all anyone needs. Not to mention the slightly messy fun of making them.

If dark chocolate doesn't tickle your tastebuds check out these other flavours.

Recipe

Ingredients:

Ganache
250g chopped milk chocolate
185ml cream double or whipping
1 shot of flavoured liqueur (Optional)

Coating
125g melted dark chocolate

Method:
  • Boil the cream.
  • Once the cream has started to boil, pour over the chopped chocolate.
  • Whisk until smooth and add the liqueur if using. Then leave in a fridge to cool and set.
  • Once set divide the ganache into sized balls. Rolling in your hands to create a round ball. (Cold hands are preferable so not to melt the ganache.)
  • Melt the chocolate for coating. 
  • Dip the ganache balls into the chocolate, let the residual drip off before placing on parchment paper.
  • Either roll using a fork to create a spiky outside or leave to dry smooth. 
  • If drying smooth, add some garnish to the top to add flavour and extra appeal.
