Raspberry Ganache Truffles

Makes 20-30 Prep Time 1 hours 15 minutes   Rated:

This recipe is a bit delish. There is a match made in heaven and it is dark chocolate and raspberries! I think if you make a batch of these you should probably send me some for testing, but of course, save plenty for your love. Happy Valentine's Day.

FYI, I melt my chocolate in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir it with a spatoohlahlah and return to the microwave as needed for 15 seconds at a time, stir again. When you can see the edges are melted, then the middle will usually finish melting as you stir. This eliminates loss of chocolate around the edges of the Thermomix bowl and blade when you are only doing a small amount.

TASTE:

There are loads of aromas you may not expect under normal circumstances that are present in raspberries. Ergo, these aromas, as listed would also go well in your truffles. Though the eggplant/asparagus things have me puzzled!

Floral rose-like aroma: blueberries, blackberries, watermelon, carrots, green asparagus, almonds, black and green teas

Fruity coconut-peach aroma: stone fruits, cheese, buttermilk, cognac and rum

Citrus-orange aroma: orange, lime, yuzu, passionfruit, coriander, lemongrass, lemon verbena, kaffir lime leaf, mint and ginger

Spicy clove aroma: fresh basil, bay leaves, hot peppers, cinnamon, sambuca and cognac

Green grass aroma: apricot, apple, avocado, artichokes and eggplant

Raspberry Puree can be purchased in frozen format from many sources. If you are struggling to find it, you can make it yourself from frozen raspberries. Simply cook the raspberries until hot, press through a fine sieve to remove seeds. Reserve the remaining puree and weigh as needed for this recipe.
