Mint Truffles
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
1:20
Plan For

4 hours set time

Yield :
3 dozen truffles

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 bars (6 ounce each) high quality chocolate with cocoa content near 60%

DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop one 6 ounce bar chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan bring whipping cream and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat and pour onto chopped chocolate. Stir using a whisk until chocolate is melted, add mint extract. Taste mint ganache and if desired add a small additional amount of peppermint extract.
  3. Cover mint ganache with plastic food wrap and let set for 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Using a melon baller scoop out ganache into round balls. Remaining ganache can be pressed and rolled by hand into balls. Set aside.
  5. Line 2 cookie sheets or cutting boards with plastic food film and set aside.
  6. Chop remaining chocolate bars into small pieces and place 2/3 of it in a microwave-proof bowl. Set 1/3 of remaining chocolate aside.
  7. Select a saucepan which will nicely hold the above bowl. Fill saucepan with one inch of water and bring to a boil.
  8. Once boiling turn to very low simmer and place chocolate bowl on top. Stir constantly until chocolate is nearly melted and has reached 115°F.
  9. Remove from heat and allow cooling to 112°F. Add remaining chocolate bar and stir until most has melted.
  10. Place some chocolate on palm of your hand and roll a round ganache ball into it. Place on plastic lined cookie sheet. Repeat until all is done. If chocolate becomes too firm or cold place it in the microwave for 4-5 seconds intervals.
  11. Keep truffles refrigerated.
