Remarkably Indulgent Peppermint Chocolate Truffles
Homemade truffles are melt in your mouth creamy & so easy to whip together. Our peppermint chocolate truffles are the perfect special Christmas treat which will impress your guests! Using good quality chocolate and Remarkable Cream liqueur make these peppermint truffles drool-worthy & moreish.
∙1/4 cup thickened cream
∙400g good-quality dark chocolate, chopped
∙2 tbsp mint-flavoured cream liqueur (Use Remarkable Base Cream & Peppermint Flavour)
∙3 candy canes crushed
∙50g good-quality white chocolate, chopped
In a small heatproof bowl pour in cream and half of your chocolate (finely chopped). Microwave, uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth. Stir in your Remarkable Cream liqueur. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 -3 hours until firm enough to scoop.
Line a tray with baking paper. Using 2 teaspoons chocolate mixture at a time, roll into balls. Place on tray. Refrigerate the rolled truffles for at least 15 minutes before dipping in the chocolate.
Place remaining dark chocolate in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth.
Using a fork or toothpick, dip truffles in melted chocolate, shaking off excess. Return truffles to tray. Refrigerate until set.
Place white chocolate in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered for 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth. Spoon chocolate into a snap-lock bag. Snip off one corner and pipe chocolate over truffles. Crush candy canes and sprinkle over white chocolate. Refrigerate until set.
This recipe is perfect to adapt to almost any flavour you like, try using our natural orange zest instead of peppermint or Butterscotch Remarkable Cream for a toffee flavoured truffle.
