Vanilla Chocolate Truffles

Yields: 25 – 30 truffles

Prep time: 30 min

Chilling time: a few hours or overnight

Materials

  • 200 g white chocolate
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 60 ml cream or coconut milk
  • 25 g unsalted butter
  • vanilla bean paste
  • ground almonds for rolling the truffles

Tools

  • kitchen scales or measuring cups and spoons
  • double boiler or a heatproof bowl and sauce pan
  • oven mitts or kitchen towel
  • large spoon
  • small spoon
  • rubber spatula
  • large mixing bowl
  • whisk

Instructions

1) Melt the chocolate and butter

Add the white chocolate and butter into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Bring the water to a mild simmer and constantly stir until the chocolate and butter are melted. The water shouldn’t touch the bottom of the bowl and make sure the chocolate doesn’t come in contact with water, or it might seise and become unusable.

 

2) Make truffle mixture

To make vanilla truffles, add the ground almonds, cream, and vanilla bean extract. Stir well to combine. Chill the mixture for several hours or overnight.

 

3) Roll the truffles

Once set, roll 1 tablespoon of truffle mixture between the palms of your hands into a ball and then roll in ground almonds until evenly coated.
