It is the hype of the holiday season now!
Let’s indulge in a decadent chocolatey treat!
Japanese-inspired Chocolate Truffles
*Special thank you to wellness expert and senior Peloton instructor, Emma Lovewell for sharing this recipe after her trip to Japan earlier this year.
- 18 ounces Dark Chocolate (about 500g)
- 1 cup Heavy Cream (room temperature)
- 1 tablespoon Liquor of choice (*Emma recommends Whiskey, Bourbon, or Brandy)
- Cocoa Powder, for dusting
Chop the chocolate! The smaller the pieces, the faster it will melt. A little extra work in the beginning will save time during the melting process.
Over a low flame, bring the heavy cream until just shy of boiling. Immediately. remove from when you observe bubbles on the side of the pot.
Add the chocolate shards to the heavy cream. Mix until smooth and melted. Add the liquor of choice.
Transfer chocolate-cream mix into a parchment-lined dish. *The dish should be large enough to hold all ingredients but small enough so that when you smooth out the chocolate, there is 1/2 inch thickness of chocolate.
Chill in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 hours.
Remove from the refrigerator and cut into squares. *For cleanest edges, use a sharp knife dipped in hot water.
Dust with the cocoa powder. Enjoy!
