This was a cute little post I was hoping to bring to you before Valentines Day. Sadly for you I am very lazy and spent all my time eating and looking at Pinterest instead of writing, luckily I’m just in time for White Day! (For those not in South Korea, White Day is celebrated on March 14 where men give the women they love chocolate. I am obviously a big fan). However truffles aren’t just for Valentine’s Day, they’re for life. So make these babies up any day you feel like it. I got my box at Daiso for 1,000, they had quite the variety. These will make such a cute gift for a friend’s birthday, and it’s always nice to have something a little bit thoughtful or home-made.
200g couverture white chocolate (I got mine at the bakers mart)
2 tablespoons of butter
150ml of cream
150g of crushed or ground almonds
Melt the chocolate and butter in a metal or glass bowl over a pot of simmering water. Be very careful to make sure that you don’t get any water into the chocolate mixture. Once the chocolate and butter have melted together, stir in the cream. Mix together thoroughly then put in the fridge to set for a few hours. Once the mixture has set, take a teaspoonful and roll it into a ball in your hands. Roll the truffle into the crushed almonds and put on a tray. Repeat until all your truffles are made.
Pop them back in the fridge for another 30 minutes just to let them reset. Pop them into your lovely gift box, or if you are greedy like me, devour them immediately. Voilà easy home-made white chocolate truffles.
