Ingredients

  • Billington'™s Triple Sweet Truffles by Paul A Young recipe
  • Ingredients:
  • For the ganache
  • 250ml Water
  • 75g Billington's Unrefined Light Muscovado
  • 125g Billington'™s Molasses
  • 500g Michel Cluizel 50% Madagascan milk chocolate or milk chocolate of 40% and above cocoa percentage, chopped into very small pieces
  • For the coating
  • 300g 70% Cocoa solids dark chocolate “ Valrhona Guanaja or other preferred dark chocolate
  • 150g 100% Cocoa solids Madagascan dark chocolate
  • 100g Billington's Dark Muscovado
  • To roll your truffles
  • 50g Cocoa powder

Method

    1. Bring the water, molasses and light muscovado to a simmer, until all the sugar has melted.
    2. Pour on the chopped chocolate and whisk well until very smooth and thick.Pour into a food container and allow to cool, then refrigerate for at least two hours.
    3. Once your ganache is refrigerated and set, scoop out nuggets of the ganache to your required size and place on to a parchment-lined baking tray. Using the cocoa powder to dust your finger, so the ganache doesn’t stick, roll the ganache into even balls. Place back onto the sheet and pop back into the fridge for half an hour.
    4. Chop both the chocolates into small pieces and mix together in a glass or metal mixing bowl.Place on a pan of very hot, but not boiling, water, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Melt for at least an hour, mixing occasionally. This will give you a good and even melt on the chocolate and the finished result will be smooth and silky.
