Tiramisu Truffles

2 min read
Give these truffles as a Christmas present. With white and dark chocolate, plus a marsala and espresso centre, they taste just like a slice of tiramisu.

Preparation Time: 30 Minutes

Cooking Time: 5 Minutes

Serves: 24

Ingredients:

  • 140ml double cream
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 150g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 60ml marsala
  • 1 tbsp strong espresso powder
  • 250g white chocolate

Method:

  1. Gently heat the double cream and butter until just steaming. Put the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl, pour over the warm cream and stir to melt. Stir in the marsala, then mix the espresso powder with 1 tbsp boiling water and add this as well. Chill for 1-2 hrs, or until firm enough to scoop. Use a teaspoon to scoop the mixture and gently roll into balls using your hands (you may want to use gloves). Put on a lined baking tray and freeze for 30 mins.

  2. Heat the white chocolate in the microwave for 1-2 mins, or until melted, then dip each ball in the white chocolate and return to the tray using a fork. Dust with a little espresso powder while the chocolate is still soft. Return to the freezer for 10-15 mins to set. Will keep in the fridge for three days.
