A small story on chocolate truffles presented to you by Delices and Gourmandises
Behind every great confectionary product there is a great story that Delices and Gourmandises would like to share with you. In December 1895, Louis Dufour did not have enough raw materials to prepare his cookies and pastries whereas Christmas and New Year’s Eve festivities were coming up fast. He then decided to use whatever he had in stock rather than ask his peers for help. That led him to only use cocoa powder, vanilla, and crème fraiche. The mixture was put together into some melted chocolates before it was sprinkled with cocoa powder in order to get a matte texture that reminded you of a truffle. Since then, truffles have been associated with culinary traditions of the Savoie and Chambery region.
Delices and Gourmandises’ recipe to prepare chocolate truffles
Chocolate truffles are easy to prepare. It takes about 10 minutes to make a set. As ingredients, you will need 450 g of chocolate, 25 cl of crème fraiche, and some cocoa powder. If you cannot find any cocoa powder, Delices and Gourmandises recommends using crushed chocolates.
Boil the crème fraiche in a pan. Pour the boiling crème into your chocolate, which will melt due to the heat. Stir gently with a spoon and add any aroma you want. Let the mixture cool for about two (2) hours. All you need to do next is make some small chocolate balls with your hand or by using two spoons before you sprinkle the balls with cocoa powder. If you want to have some original designs, you can use sesame seeds, crushed coconut, or almonds instead of cocoa powder. Anything you want will work to amaze your family.
