I don’t know about you but the first thing that springs to my mind when I think about Christmas is F.O.O.D and lots of it!
Every Noel, I make some truffes. There are pretty easy to create, reaaaaaally nice and since there are 24 days left until Christmas, so you’ve even got plenty of time to get a little practice. Then you can impress your guests and even more so if you say to them: “C’est moi qui les ai est fait’, repeat after me: ‘sei moa ki lei ei fei’ (Broad English accent will do).
Look at these baby. Tempting, huh?
(For approximately 30 truffes)
150 g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
11 cl cream
20 g clear honey
20 g unsalted butter
200 g dark chocolate
100 g cocoa powder
Bring the cream and honey to the boil.
Shred the chocolate.
Pour the cream and honey on the chocolate. Whisk.
Add butter. Whisk again.
Pour the mix into a 25 mm high dish and leave in the fridge over night.
Sprinkle some cocoa powder over the ganache. Cut it into 2 cm cubes.
Put some cocoa powder on your hands, roll the cubes to form bowls.
Melt half of the remaining chocolate until it reaches 32 degrees.
Dip the truffles into the melted chocolate and lay them onto a tray covered in cling film.
Leave to cool.
Melt the rest of the chocolate.
Dip the truffes again into the melted chocolate. Roll them into cocoa powder.
Put them in the fridge for 5/10 minutes until they become hard. And finally let them melt in your mouth!
