White Chocolate, Chili and Liquorice Truffles

Truffles is one of my favorite christmas treats and I make them in several different variations each year.

This version is with home grown dried chilies from my parents garden and the chocolate is of cause Amedei Toscano White which is my favorite chocolate brand and never use anything else. It is bit more expensive than other chocolate brands but I promise that it all worth it!! Having guest over, they alway get an extra big smile on their lips when I bring a small bowl of these delicious and creamy chocolate chip to the table. If you ever get the change to taste it, I will highly recommend that you use the extra few $ and buy this brand instead of your usual choice.

 

Ingredients (40 truffles)

10 oz. white chocolate chips (I prefer Amedei)

4 oz. heavy cream

1 large orange, zest

1-2 tsp. dried chili flakes

2 tbsp. liquorice powder

 

Melt the chocolate in a heat prof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove form heat when chocolate is melted.

Add orange zest and cream to a frying pan and bring to a boil. Pour 1/3 of the hot cream into the melted chocolate and stir to combine. Add the remaining cream and chili flakes and stir until evenly combined.

Leave the truffle mixture to cool in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours or preferably over night.

Use a teaspoon to make 30 small pieces (1/2 oz. each) and use your hands to roll it into balls. Fridge again.

Place the liquorice powder in a small bowl and remove the truffles from the fridge just before serving. Toss gently in liquorice powder and serve 🙂
