Recipe Ingredient

  • Star anise chocolate ganache:
  • 350g UHT cream
  • 25g star anise, slightly crushed
  • 500g milk chocolate
  • 80g honey
  • 80g butter, at room temperature
  • Finishing:
  • 70g dark chocolate
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 50g icing sugar

Instructions

  1. To prepare chocolate ganache :
  2. Combine the cream and star anise in a pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside to infuse for 5 minutes.
  3. Melt the milk chocolate over simmering water and remove from heat. Add the honey (without stirring).
  4. Strain the cream into the melted chocolate and honey. Beat with a wire whisk until creamy. Add the butter and stir to mix until very smooth. Pour to a depth of 2cm in a parchment paper-lined pan. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. To form and finish the truffles:} Cut the cooled chocolate ganache into 2cm cubes. Melt the dark chocolate.
  6. Using plastic or surgical-type gloves, roll the ganache cube into a ball and dip into the melted chocolate to coat ball completely. This final dipping in chocolate will give your truffles a delicious crunch as you bite into it.
  7. Roll in the cocoa powder or icing sugar, or a mixture of both for a varied look. Line the truffles on a parchment paper-lined tray as you complete them. Store in the refrigerator and consume within 3 days.
