Chocolate Raspberry Truffles
- 1 ⅓ cup Frozen raspberries
- ¼ cup Powdered sugar
- ¼ cup Heavy whipping cream
- 7 oz Good quality white chocolate
- 1 TBSP Water
- 7 oz Dark chocolate 52% to 70% cocoa
- Pink chocolate as ruby chocolate or pink candy melts
- Start to defrost the raspberries.
- Chop finely the white chocolate. Set aside. (Note: absolutely necessary to chop finely the chocolate. It will help to melt uniformly in the puree)
- Add the thawed raspberries in a blender and whizz until they are completely reduced in puree.
- Pour the raspberry puree through a strainer to remove the seeds. You might need to add a bit of water if your puree is too thick (just a little bit of water, we still want a puree texture).
- In a saucepan, add the raspberry puree and the powdered sugar. Stir.
- Over medium heat, bring to boil, stirring frequently.
- Once boiled, heat over low heat, stirring frequently, until it is reduced by about half. It takes about 25 minutes.
- Add the heavy whipping cream. Mix until fully incorporated.
- In a large bowl, add the chopped white chocolate. Pour the warm raspberry puree and stir until the chocolate is melted and the texture is smooth. (Note: you can let your bowl in a warm water bath. It would help to melt the chocolate.)
- Cover with a plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2 hours until firm.
- Scoop the ganache and, using your hands, shape into small balls (about 1 inch diameter).
- Melt the dark chocolate. Using a fork, dip a truffle into the melted chocolate. Shake gently to allow any excess of chocolate to drip back.
- Place the truffle onto a baking sheet lined with a baking parchment. Dip the remaining truffles, one by one.
- Refrigerate the truffles until the chocolate is set (about 25 min). Note: You should have an excess of dark chocolate but necessary to dip the truffles properly. Once all the truffles are covered with chocolate, pour the remaining melted chocolate on a baking parchment, spread it and let it set. You can reuse it later.
