Dark Chocolate Truffles
  • 1pound dark chocolate480 grams of dark chocolate
  • 1cup heavy cream8 oz.
  • 1cup dark cocoa powder128 grams
Making the ganache
  1. First, chop the chocolate into small pieces. Place the pieces into a heat resistant bowl.
  2. Next, on medium heat, bring the cream to a boil. One the cream begins to bubble, remove it from the burner.
  3. Pour about half of the cream onto the chocolate. Vigorously whisk the chocolate until half of it is melted. Then, pour the rest of the cream onto the chocolate and continue to whisk it until all of the chocolate is melted. This process can take about two minutes, depending on how quickly you are whisking.
  4. Next, cover your bowl of ganache with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for about an hour. The ganache should be firm but not hard.
Shaping the truffles
  1. To shape the truffles you will need a small spoon and cocoa powder. Place the cocoa powder on a plate or parchment paper. Place the other toppings on separate plates or papers.
  2. Sprinkle cocoa powder in the palms of both hands. Take one tablespoon of gnache and roll it in your hands until a ball shape is formed. Finally, sprinkle it with a little extra cocoa powder or roll it in chocolate crunchies.
