This Christmas we wanted to focus on the gifting element for our beloved friends and family…and what better gift than to create these easy chocolate truffles! Infused with the sweet and nutty flavours of amaretto, this really does pack a punch to the little sweet treat treats, perfect for your fellow chocoholic. When it comes to coating your truffles, you can choose from pistachios, desiccated coconut or cocoa powder.
- Place the finely chopped chocolate in a large heatproof bowl. Put the cream into a saucepan and heat until just boiling, then remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate. Allow it to sit for a few minutes before whisking until smooth. Add the butter, amaretto, almond extract, and pinch of Maldon Salt and then whisk again until smooth.
- Transfer to a shallow tin and allow to cool at room temp before adding to the fridge to firm up (2 hours). When cooled, roll the ganache truffles in your hands in balls, keeping in the fridge whilst you do the rest. Then roll the truffles in either desiccated coconut, finely chopped pistachios or cocoa powder before serving.
