Coconut chocolate truffles

Makes about 20 truffles.

Ingredients

  • 250 grams gianduja or praline chocolate bars.
  • 50 grams dark chocolate
  • 200 ml heavy whipping cream, 35%
  • Shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. To make the chocolate filling, roughly chop both chocolates and place in a large bowl. Bring the whipping cream to a boil. Once the cream has boiled, pour over the chocolates and stir until melted and you are left with a creamy ganache.
  2. Cover and chill until firm, about 2 hours. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes before rolling.
  3. Place the shredded coconut in a bowl and prepare a cookie sheet covered with parchment to place the truffles on.
  4. Shape truffles by rolling the ganache between your palms and then dip into the coconut.
  5. If the mixture gets too soft, place the ganache in the freezer for 20 minutes, and continue.
