  • Step 1/5

    • g cream
    • tbsp Earl Grey tea
    • saucepan (small)
    • empty tea bag

    In a small saucepan, heat the cream over medium heat. Add Earl Grey tea into a tea bag and let brew in the hot cream for approx. 10 min. Remove the tea bag and set aside.

  • Step 2/5

    • 16⅔ g milk chocolate
    • 3⅓ g butter (room temperature)
    • g freeze-dried raspberries
    • pot (small)
    • bowl
    • fine sieve
    • rubber spatula
    • immersion blender
    • food processor

    Melt milk chocolate over a water bath (or in the microwave). Then pour approx. ⅓ of the cream through a sieve into the melted chocolate. Stir in carefully using a rubber spatula, then gradually fold in the rest of the cream. Stir in the butter and let sit for approx. 5 min. Use an immersion blender on low to gently blend the butter into the chocolate mixture. Keep the blender at the bottom of the bowl so no air is mixed in and the mixture stays nice and smooth. Roughly blend the dried raspberries in a food processor and fold half of it into the ganache.

  • Step 3/5

    • baking dish
    • plastic wrap

    Line a baking dish with plastic wrap and spread the ganache smoothly and evenly into the dish. Transfer to the refrigerator to harden for approx. 2 hrs., or overnight.

  • Step 4/5

    • 13⅓ g bittersweet chocolate
    • cutting board
    • knife
    • disposable gloves
    • bowl

    Invert the ganache onto a clean cutting board and cut into squares (approx. 2x2 cm/ ¾-in). Use gloves to shape each into a round ball, place on a plate, and refrigerate again for approx. 30 min. In the meantime, melt some of the dark chocolate over a water bath. Once melted, add in the remaining chocolate, let sit briefly, and stir gently to temper the chocolate. This way, as it cools down, the chocolate will set nicely firm and shiny.

  • Step 5/5

    • g unsweetened cocoa powder
    • tsp edible rose petal
    • 2 plates

    Add cocoa powder to one plate and remaining powdered raspberries to another plate. Coat each truffle ball in the melted chocolate and then roll it in either cocoa powder or powdered raspberries. You can also coat some of the pralines in chocolate only and garnish with dried rose petals. Leave to dry and enjoy yourself or give as a gift wrapped in sachets or clean jam jars. Enjoy!

  • Enjoy your meal!
