Recipe Instructions

Blend all ingredients, except for the chocolate. Heat mixture to 219°F.

Allow to fully cool before folding in the precrystalized (tempered) chocolate.

Immediately pipe into hollow truffle shells. Allow to stiffen sufficiently before sealing the shells. Garnish.

Ecole Chocolat Note: This is a very soft ganache so that is why Chef has piped it into preformed truffle shells. It may be too soft for using in molded shells and will be definitely too soft for dipped truffles. Pre-made hollow truffle shells, sorbitol and other specialty chocolate-making ingredients are available online at some of the chocolate suppliers listed in our suppliers list below.
