Making homemade chocolate petit fours are such a treat. The flavour combinations of chocolate are endless! Chocolate- orange/mint/raspberry/hazelnut…
With a dinner party set for this week, I needed to have a go at making some more for after dessert treat. With it being summer and the abundance of strawberries in season I decided to make a white chocolate and strawberry truffle.
In case you didn’t know, the centre of any truffle is a ganache- a mix of chocolate, cream sugar and butter-which is then rolled in coco or melted chocolate (preferably tempered).
100g strawberries, pureed
140g white chocolate, melted
75ml whipping cream
150g white chocolate, tempered
Add the strawberry puree and melted chocolate to a blender and blitz
Bring the cream to a boil, cool slightly and add to the blender. Mix to form an emulsion
Take a teaspoon of set ganache and roll into a ball
Dip each ball into the tempered chocolate using a cocktail stick
Add to a wire rack which has a piece of greaseproof paper underneath to avoid it dripping onto the work surface
Leave to set…then enjoy!
