Author Notes: I've been playing with truffle variations using the Tartine recipes as the base. This is one of my favorites. The caramel cuts through the chocolate for a salt and fennel pollen kick at the end. ginnygetsfloury

Makes: 20

Fennel Pollen Salted Caramel

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fennel pollen
  1. In a sauce pan, heat the sugar over medium until it begins to caramelize stirring occasionally.
  2. When the sugar becomes caramel colored and is all dissolved, slowly pour in the cream. Be careful because it will boil and sometimes splatter. Continue stirring until it has been fully incorporated. If the caramel seizes up a little, continue to stir over the heat until it is liquid again.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the butter, salt and fennel pollen.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Truffles

  • 1/2 pound dark chocolate chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2.5 tablespoons olive oil

  2. Pour over the chocolate and stir until melted.
  3. Mix in the olive oil.
  4. Stir in the salted caramel.
  5. Set in the fridge for at least an hour to become solid.
  6. With a spoon or melonballer, spoon out about a tablespoon of the ganche and roll it into a ball. Roll in the cocoa powder.
