0  comments

Welcome to the world of divine, decadent delights, where the outlandishly ordinary meets the mystically majestic. Today, we’ll take a trip into the ecstatic sphere of gourmet creations with Turmeric Infused Chocolate Truffles. This isn’t your everyday chocolate truffle, this delicacy takes you on a gustatory getaway, where the humble truffle is imbued with the golden goodness of turmeric, resulting in flavor fusion unlikely to be forgotten.

Ingredients List

For this exotic exploration, you’ll need:

  • 200g Dark Chocolate
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • A pinch of Salt
  • Cocoa Powder for dusting

For a dairy-free option, you can swap heavy cream with coconut cream and butter with coconut oil for an equally delectable outcome!

Instructions

  1. Begin by chopping the dark chocolate into small bits, for quicker and smoother melting.
  2. In a saucepan, simmer the heavy cream and butter together. Do this over gentle heat, resist rushing the process or you may end up with cream that’s bitter, not buttery!
  3. Once your cream-butter brew is steaming, sprinkle in the magic dust – turmeric powder. Stir consistently to ensure an evenly yellow mixture. Let the heat imbue the cream with the earthy aroma of turmeric.
  4. Now, it’s chocolate melting time! Add your chopped pieces of dark chocolate to the cream mix. Lower your heat setting, and stir until smooth. Consider this a culinary couple’s dance, where the cream leads and the chocolate follows.
  5. Stir in the vanilla extract and salt. Remove from heat and let your mixture cool for a while before refrigerating it for at least 3 hours.
  6. Once firm, it’s truffle time. Pull out your mixture, roll even scoops of your truffle mixture into perfect spheres, then dust with cocoa powder.
  7. Voila! Your lip-smacking Turmeric Infused Chocolate Truffles are ready!

This recipe will take you a mere 20 minutes to prepare and additional 3 hours to set. The quantity will yield around 15 to 20 truffles, all depending on your scooping size!
