Conversely, if you want a more delicate note, you can replace rum or Maraschino, with homemade cherry.
Herehow to make chocolate truffles:
- Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
If you have a thermometer in your kitchen, make sure that the temperature of the water you use to melt the chocolate does not exceed 95 °. The chocolate will have to melt slowly and sweetly, so turn it periodically with a wooden spoon and above all avoid melting it in the microwave where you have no control over the temperatures reached.
- When the chocolate has melted, whip it with a flat whisk (or planetary mixer) with vanilla (or vanillin), Maraschino (or rum) and pour the cream at room temperature slowly.
- Stir carefully until all the ingredients are combined.
- Transfer the enriched chocolate to a bowl and let it thicken, at room temperature, for at least 2 - 3 hours.
- Pick up the dough with your hands and create the classic flattened balls (typical shape of the classicchocolate truffle).
- Pour each ball into a bowl containing cocoa so as to cover the entire surface.
