Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

Chocolate Raspberry Truffles


Author Notes: These truffles use raspberry puree instead of cream to make the ganache which gives them an intense raspberry flavor and also happens to make them vegan. They are sure to please vegans and non-vegans alike. Couldn't Be Parve

  • 6.5 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate

In This Recipe

Directions

Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

  1. Finely chop the chocolate and place it in a heat proof bowl. Combine the raspberry puree and oil and heat it until almost boiling. (This can be done in the microwave or in a small pan on the stove. Stir frequently if using the stove)
  2. Pour the hot puree over the chocolate and let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk or stir gently until completely combined and smooth. If some chocolate remains unmelted microwave the mixture in 10 second intervals, stirring well each time, until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Pour the chocolate mixture into a shallow bowl or pan and refrigerate until firm, at least one hour.
  4. Using a small scoop or spoon roll small balls of the chilled ganache. Coat the balls in cocoa powder and serve at room temperature. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

Raspberry puree

  1. Blend raspberries in a food processor or blender until pureed. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, using a spoon to press as much of the puree through as possible. Discard solids. There may be more puree than needed for this recipe, save the rest for another use.

Update 2017: I made these for Christmas again, but had "lost" the recipe because I believe the photo was removed. Anyway, I tried to make them from memory and they didn't turn out so well this time because I forgot about the oil. The oil added the wonderful mouth feel. So I made another batch once I finally found my hard copy and then found the original recipe on Food 52 and they are just as wonderful as I remembered. Everyone raves about them when I make them. Thank you Couldn't Be Parve!!!

This recipe is lovely!!! I found if I heated up the raspberry puree in the microwave for 30 seconds or so it made going through the sieve really easy! I then made the truffles really small and the raspberry flavor just punches through the Chocolate and is awesome!
