The slight sharpness of the apricot provides a delicious contrast to the dark chocolate in these luscious truffles.
Servings: 36 truffles
Calories: 89

Ingredients
 

  • 1 lb milk chocolate 70 per cent cocoa
  • 6 floz milk
  • 1 tbsp apricot liqueur
  • 12 soft dried apricots finely diced
  • 3 1/2 oz milk couverture
  • 7 oz cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Place in a bain-marie (over a saucepan of simmering water), and mix until melted. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until boiling. Pour into the melted chocolate and stir well. Add the liqueur and blend until smooth.
  • Remove from the heat. Gradually add the apricot pieces, stirring constantly. As the mixture cools it will thicken and form a workable paste. Allow to cool so that you can roll the mixture into balls between your fingers. Leave to cool completely, while you temper the couverture for dipping.
  • Sift the cocoa powder on to a plate. Using a thin fork, stab the truffles one at a time, dip in the tempered chocolate, then roll in the cocoa powder and leave to cool.
