1/2 Photos of Amarula Cream Truffles: a Homemade Gift!
These sinfully rich chocolate truffles will make a lovely gift in the festive season! They're easy to make and they also freeze well. Use different "finishes" for a professional look. I give the metric amounts as well. Time to make is very hard to pin down, so I guessed that. I also have no idea how many chocolates an individual cook might make -- depends on size and whether you use a filling like a nut -- so had to guess.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Break up the chocolate into small pieces.
- 2In a saucepan with a thick bottom, melt the chocolate and the cream together over low heat. Give it a stir with a fork now and then.
- 3Cut up the butter and when the mixture has almost melted, add the butter, and stir until the mixture is smooth. Keep heat very gentle!
- 4Remove from heat and stir in the Amarula Cream.
- 5Cool the mixture and let it set (not too long) in the fridge.
- 6Have ready for finishing your truffles: sifted cocoa powder, dried coconut (dessicated coconut)/finely ground almonds/finely crushed peanuts/sifted icing sugar (confectioner's sugar), pine nuts, or finely split almonds. You could also enclose glacé cherries in some, or a nut of choice.
- 7Use a small spoon to scoop out walnut-sized pieces of the chocolate mixture, shape into balls or ovals, and roll each one in one of the "garnishes" suggested.
- 8You could also make up a white, thin icing with confectioners' sugar and water, and decorate some truffles with thin white lines.
- 9Keep in one layer and keep cool. They can be frozen. But they should be served at room temperature.
