If I had to choose one flavor-combo I cannot imagine what pastry world would be without it – it’s certainly chocolate and salted caramel. This is one of the classics in French patisserie, and I can’t think of even one person who doesn’t like these flavors combines.
These next truffles are a celebration of this amazing combo – salted caramel chocolate truffles. They are super decadent, chocolatey, rich and melt in the mouth. The salted caramel balances the sweetness of the chocolate, and together they created the most delicious bite.
If you like chocolate and salted caramel as much as I do – don’t miss this recipe. Easy to make, gluten free and simply perfect.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Truffles
For the truffles:
- 200 grams dark chocolate 53% cocoa solids
- 220 grams dark chocolate 70% cocoa solids
- 120 grams sugar
- 50 grams soft butter
- 1 tbsp. light corn syrup
- 250 ml. heavy cream
- 4 grams Atlantic sea salt
- Cocoa powder for coating
Chop the chocolate and put in a medium bowl.
Place the sugar in a saucepan and form caramel over high heat.
Once the sugar has melted and caramel gets amber color, add the butter and corn syrup and cook together over low heat until the butter is completely absorbed.
Meanwhile, cream and salt to a simmering point.
When caramel is ready, add the cream, and cook over low heat for 3-4 minutes the mixture is completely uniform and smooth.
Pour the caramel over the chopped chocolate, wait a minute and beat until smooth ganache is formed.
Transfer the ganache into a 20*20 cm square pan and cool in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours until completely set.
Cut the ganache into squares and roll in cocoa powder.
Serve at room temperature.
