How to make it

  • 1) First take the Raspberries and put them in a pot and start to cook them...I cooked them for probably 30-45 minutes to reduce them down and get some water out.
  • 2) Then add the 7 oz. of heavy cream to the reduced raspberry. Heat to a simmer and then remove from heat.
  • 3) Strain the mixture to get the seeds out and poor out directly onto chopped chocolate.
  • 4) Since this mixture will be sort of thick you will probably have to put the chopped chocolate and heavycream/raspberry mixture on a double boiler(Pot of hot water with the bowl of chocolate/heavy cream and raspberry over it).
  • 5) Stir that mixture lightly with a wisk until it becomes a uniform mass.
  • 6) Take off double boiler and if the mixture is still fairly cool(under 100 degrees F. Warm but not hot) then add the 3 oz. of butter and wisk in with medium vigor but towards the slower side...
  • 7) Once incorporated you are done for the moment and you can put all the ganache into a small bowl.
  • 8) Put plastic wrap over the ganache and place in refridgerator. Let it cool until it hardens up(6 hours).
  • 9) Scoop out with spoon or small scooper into small balls and roll in your hands to forms a nice ball...

    Two of my husband's favorite foods - raspberries and chocolate. I don't think he would argue about mixing the two of them. Sounds absolutely wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

    This recipe is quite similar to a recipe I had posted that was originally from a Gourmet magazine. That particular recipe has been a tradition around the holidays. Your truffles sound fabulous and I will be eager to try making them. Nothing like the combination of chocolate with raspberries!
