Intense Manjari Truffles

Intense Manjari Ganache 

  • 565g Whipping cream
  • 105g Glucose DE 60 
  • 70g butter
  • 592g MANJARI 64%
  • 120g MANJARI PURE PATE 100%

Heat the cream with the glucose to 165-175°F (75-80°C), then combine half with the chocolate fèves and the chopped PURE PASTEMix well with a spatula then add the rest of the cream mixture, and mix using an immersion blender to form a perfect emulsion. Once the ganache is at 95-105°F (35-40°C), add the cubed tempered butter, which should be at approx. 65°F (18°C) and mix again. At 95-100°F (34-36°C), pour the ganache into a frame, to a height of 8mm. Leave this mixture to set until it has the perfect texture for piping. 

Cocoa Nib Crisp

  • 300g GRUE DE CACAO
  • 5g fleur de sel 
  • 70g Muscovado sugar

In a food processor, gently mix all the ingredients together to break the nibs and fleur de sel into smaller grains. Sift the mixture to remove any powder – You should be left with lots of small pieces.

Pre-Coating Truffle Mixture

  • 400g MANJARI 64%

Melt the MANJARI chocolate with the COCOA BUTTER. Mix thoroughly and leave to set.

Manjari 84% Mixture

  • 412g MANJARI 64% 
  • 588g MANJARI PURE PATE 100% 

Melt the MANJARI chocolate with the PURE PATE. Leave to set before use. 

Assembly and Finishing

Make the ganache. Use a 12mm-diameter nozzle to pipe the truffles out onto a sheet of confectionery dipping paper. Leave to set for 24 hours at 60°F (17°C). Make the Cocoa Nib Crisp and set aside. The next day, use the Pre-Coating Truffle Mixture to coat the truffles and leave them to set on a piece of confectionery dipping paper for 30 minutes. Coat the truffles with the MANJARI 84% Mixture. Roll the truffles in the Cocoa Nib Crisp and leave them to set.
