The past days I have been very busy preparing for christmas. The last experiment (It is the first time I ever tried making this) was Chocolate Truffles with Violet flavour covered in chocolate!
However they came out real yummy and this is the recipe!
400 grams of dark chocolate
2,5 dl of whipping cream
50 grams butter
10-15 drops of violet extract for food flavoring
150 grams chocolate to cover the truffles in chocolate
Chocolate Transfer Sheets with Christmas patterns
Heat whipping Cream and Chocolate. Remove from heat, break 300 grams of chocolate into the hot mixture and stirr until the chocolate has melted. Add the food flavoring.
Poor the mixture into a pan, cover up and let it rest overnight.
Cut Truffles into small pieces (ca 2×2 cm) and freeze for a few hours.
Heat the rest of the chocolate in a waterbath and make sure it does not surpass 40C degrees (just above body temperature).
When the chocolate has melted grab the now frozen chocolate truffles from the freezer and dip until covered in the melted chocolate. Add a piece of Chocolate transfer paper (while chocolate is still melted) and leave on a baking paper to cool off. Once the chocolate is hard you can remove the transfer paper and the prints will stay on the chocolate :D
They came out absolutely delicious !!! and I just love how the christmas patterns look!
Awesome small gifts for friends and family !
Keep cool and dry.
Remember that the choice of chocolate is important and the better the chocolate, the better the taste!
