What Goes into Making Gourmet Chocolate Truffles
The Chocolate Rooms selection of gourmet Chocolate truffles are innovative combining flavours to create a chocolate that is both unique and original. After spending a good few months trying to see what people are eating and drinking i had come up with a few ideas that I wanted to try and develop. So how would you try to get all the flavours of a Bake well tart into chocolate. I am not one to just add some Raspberry flavoured oil and almond essence and that’s it job done!! So I tasted Bake well tarts, I know it was a tough job but it had to be done. Now when you eat the cake you start with a fantastic flavour of raspberry jam followed by the all consuming buttery almond flavour which is where I needed to get too. I knew the only way I was going to get the raspberry flavour into the gourmet chocolate truffles was to make my own jam. Its a simple process but by making my own i can decide how sharp I can make it to counter the creaminess of the chocolate. Then which chocolate should I use so i created a few different ones using a milk and white chocolate all from a well known Belgium manufacturer, the resounding winner was the white chocolate ganache with toasted ground almonds.
