Chocolate White Wine Truffles
Indulgent and velvety smooth truffles, fit for any occasion. The white wine cuts the richness and adds for an acidity that balances the sweetness making for a perfect melt in your mouth bite.
- 300 gm Dark chocolate
- 100 gm Almond milk
- 15 gm White wine
- 15 gm Cocoa powder
- 5 gm Maple syrup
- 30 gm Cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp Sea salt
Melt the chocolate until smooth (which ever method you are comfortable with)
Add the milk, wine, cocoa powder and stir. Keep stirring until combined. Taste and see if you need to add the maple. If not, leave it out.
Transfer to a shallow bowl and leave in the fridge to set for 2 hours.
Once firm, scoop out tablespoon worth of the mixture in your hands and roll until it forms the shape of a ball. Roll into the extra cocoa powdered sprinkle with sea salt on top.
Let them set for 10-15 mins before serving and eating.
> Keep an eye on your chocolate while melting, do not let it over heat as this will make your chocolate grainy.
> Do not whisk the mixture together, use a spoon and patiently mix all the ingredients until combined, you don’t want to add air but just ensure all the ingredients are mixed through.
> If the mixture is sticking to your hands too much wear gloves or oil your hands a little.
> You can dip the set truffles into melted chocolate instead of rolling them in cocoa powder as well.
