Pick Me Up!
There are some recipes on the web for tiramisu truffles that you hand roll into spheres but personally I like dipped truffles better because it's less messy eating them. Since there are outer shells to these truffles, the ganache can be more gooey than hand rolled ones. The result? Burst in your mouth explosion of chocolatiness!
Makes about 60
114g milk chocolate
114g dark chocolate
156g heavy cream
160g mascapone cheese
1 tsp espresso powder
1 tbsp+1tsp rum
1 tsp vanilla essence
60 milk chocolate truffle shells
milk chocolate for capping and dipping
dark chocolate shavings, optional
1. Combine heavy cream, sugar and espresso powder into a pot and bring it up to just boil.
2. Make ganache by pouring hot cream over chocolate and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir to combine until smooth.
3. Stir in mascapone cheese, rum and vanilla essence. Let sit till room temperature.
4. Pipe ganache into shells and cap with tempered milk chocolate. Let set. Dip or roll in more milk chocolate. Garnish with dark chocolate shavings.
