Chocolate Truffles

Adding rolled oats that have first been ground in the food processor helps hold these chocolate balls together while giving them an earthy note.

Ingredients:

  • 16 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup superfine sugar
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 oz. bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 6 tbsp. unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. brewed espresso or dark coffee, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened finely shredded dried coconut

Method:

1. Combine the butter, sugar, and salt in a large bowl and use a handheld mixer set to medium speed to beat the mixture until pale and fluffy, 1–2 minutes. Add the chocolate, cocoa powder, espresso, and vanilla and continue beating until combined, about 1 minute more.

2. Place the oats in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped, about 5 pulses. Add the oats to the chocolate–butter mixture and mix until combined; refrigerate until chilled, 1 hour.

3. Divide the chilled chocolate mixture into 36 portions using a tablespoon-size measuring spoon; roll each portion into a 1” ball. Place coconut in a shallow dish and roll each ball thoroughly in coconut; transfer balls to a baking sheet. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

    I made a batch of dark chocolate truffles which set ended up perfect, but the white chocolate truffles won’t set.

    ingredients:

    baileys
    cream
    white chocolate

    they have been in the fridge overnight but still have not set – they are a bit gooey. is it because the consistency of white chocolate is different? is there any way to fix them? :)

    Hey everyone! I was wondering what is the best recipe for chocolate truffles? There’s just so many out there that I’m confused! For instance, some use double cream, some don’t, some use butter, others don’t, some use egg yolk others don’t etc. I’m just so confused! Thanks :D
