Ingredients:

  • 250g White Cooking Chocolate 🍫
  • 80ml Thickened/Heavy Cream πŸ₯›
  • 15g Freeze-Dried Strawberries (or Strawberry Powder) πŸ“
  • 150g White Cooking Chocolate (for the coating) 🍫

Disclaimer: For accuracy and better results, I highly recommend using measurements in grams and ml instead of cups and spoons.

Instructions:

1️⃣ Prepare the Strawberry Powder

  • Place the freeze-dried strawberries in a small food processor and blend until you get a fine powder.
  • Sift through a thin mesh sieve to remove any seeds or lumps. Skip this step if using freeze-dried strawberry powder. 🌾

2️⃣ Heat the Cream

  • Place the cream in a small saucepan and heat on low until it starts to simmer, then turn off the heat. πŸ”₯

3️⃣ Melt the White Chocolate

  • Finely chop the white chocolate bar and place it in a medium-size heat-proof bowl.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the bottom of the chocolate has just started to melt. πŸ₯£

4️⃣ Make the Ganache

  • Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and leave without touching for 2 minutes.
  • Gently stir with a silicone spatula until all the chocolate has melted and the cream has been incorporated. You should get a shiny, smooth ganache. ✨

5️⃣ Incorporate the Strawberry Powder

  • Add the strawberry powder and stir until incorporated. πŸ“

6️⃣ Chill the Ganache

  • Pour the ganache mixture into a small dish or airtight container.
  • Cover with plastic wrap touching its surface and place in the refrigerator for at least three hours, or until it has set and feels firm to the touch. ❄️

7️⃣ Shape the Truffles

  • Pick up some of the filling with a small 1.5 tablespoon scoop. Roll it between your hands to shape into a ball, then place on a baking sheet lined with baking/parchment paper.
  • Repeat until all the filling has been rolled up. Place the balls in the freezer for 15 minutes, or fridge for 30 minutes. ⏲️

8️⃣ Prepare the Coating

  • Finely chop the white chocolate for the coating and place it in a small heat-proof bowl.
  • Melt in the microwave in 30-second increments, stopping to stir with a spatula each time. Continue until the chocolate is completely melted and very smooth. 🍫

9️⃣ Coat the Truffles

  • Dip each chilled ball into the melted chocolate. Using a small fork or a truffle dipper, flip it around to fully coat, then pick them up.
  • Gently tap the fork/dipper against the side of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate. Tip the strawberry truffle back over the lined tray. πŸ₯„

πŸ”Ÿ Final Touch and Chill

  • Optionally, sprinkle some crushed freeze-dried strawberries over the chocolate coating before it has started to set.
  • Place in the fridge to finish setting for at least 30 minutes, or until set and ready to serve. πŸ“πŸ«

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
