Chocolate Earl Grey Truffles

December 12, 2020  Online Recipe Guide Avatar

Willem DeFroy, Chef at Celestial Seasonings Cafe, is from Belgium so, of course, chocolate is the main ingredient in his favorite recipe.

2/3 Cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp. soft unsalted butter
2 tsp. Victorian Earl Grey dry tea leaves
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Bring cream and butter to a quick boil, add dry tea and let steep for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, finely shred chocolate and transfer to a bowl. Reheat cream mix until just warm and strain through fine sieve. Whisk until smooth over a warm water bath (place bowl with chocolate over a pan with hot water) and reserve covered for at least 2 hours in a cool place. Spoon level teaspoons full of chocolate mixture on a cold cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll each piece into a ball and dust with cocoa powder. Keep hands clean and dry as you roll the chocolate mix in cocoa. Keep in an airtight container in a cool place.
