So my second attempt with the left over Guinness were these Guinness truffles. These were quite simple to make but very messy when rolling out the truffles into a ball. My truffles are more rustic like then balls like lol, oh well I think they look like truffles.
I didn’t find the taste of the Guinness came through strongly and I did add a slight bit more to the mixture. There is more of a full of chocolate taste then Guinness taste.
These truffles are a nice treat to finish off a lovely meal, they are rich, tasty and indulgent.
- 100ml - Double cream
- 25ml - Guinness
- 250g - dark chocolate, broken into small chunks
- 1. Put the cream and Guinness in a saucepan and bring to the boil then add the chocolate. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer until the chocolate has fully melted. Make sure you stir the mixture regularly.
- 2. Leave the chocolate mixture to one side until it is cool to the touch and starting to solidify, but not set (if it doesn't set place in the fridge for a while). Take generous teaspoons of the mixture and roll in your hands to form small round truffles, dust in cocoa powder or whatever you prefer. This part is really messy and your hands will be covered in chocolate.
- 3. Set in the fridge for 2 - 3 hours.
