It should come as absolutely no surprise that we love truffles here at Grocer’s Daughter. Coming up with special ways to blend flavors and textures with our favorite chocolate is a major part of what we do.
While your support of our truffles shines strong, we want to inspire you to try making your own at home. There is a special joy in creating rustic chocolate truffles at home to share with your loved ones, or sneak after the kids go to bed.
The simplest truffles to make at home are rolled chocolate ganache, a silky smooth mixture of chocolate and cream. We recommend the pour over method of making ganache outlined below as it’s simple and nearly foolproof.
These truffles are made with just a few ingredients, so the end product relies
heavily on the quality of the ingredients you use. We recommend buying local, grass-fed heavy cream and using the best chocolate you can get your hands on.
Chocolate - we use our 70% Esmeraldas discs
Cocoa powder, nuts, crushed candy, etc. for rolling
Spices, herbs, etc to flavor the ganache (optional)
We hope you’ll take the time to make your very own ganache truffles at home. These would make an excellent dessert for a simplified holiday meal or a sweet gift to drop off for your loved ones as you gather less this holiday season.
These flourless brownie cookies (gluten free) are intensely chocolatey yet strangely light at the same time. These cookies have a little something for everyone! When we saw this recipe from The Kitchn, we knew they were a must try for our team this month!
