Smoked dark chocolate truffles

David Ralph and Jin Sun Kim

all details

You can make this recipe with an easily accessible dark chocolate to start with - Lindt or Callebaut 70 per cent are good options - then once you've mastered it, move on to single origin and explore the different flavour profiles. It is the single origin chocolate from Papau New Guinea that gives these truffles the smoky flavour.

Ingredients

  • 100ml fresh cream (35 per cent fat pouring cream is best)
  • 27g glucose
  • 20g slightly salted butter, diced
  • 125g dark chocolate from Papua New Guinea (66 per cent), broken into small pieces
  • Cocoa powder

Method

Boil the cream and glucose and pour onto the chocolate.

Stir the mix gently from the middle with a small whisk to melt the chocolate.

Cool the ganache to 40C (or until it is just warm to the touch, you can use the inside of your arm to test this).

Add the room temperature, soft butter and mix well.

Cover with cling film and leave it to set for a few hours.

Once set pipe or spoon individual truffles onto silicon paper.

Coat the ganache with chocolate and roll in cocoa powder or icing sugar

David Ralph and Jin Sun Kim own Kakawa chocolates in Sydney.
