Makes approximately 100 truffles
Recipe Step by Step
Intense Macaé Ganache
535g Whipping cream
115g Glucose DE 60
576g MACAE 62%
153g MACAE PURE PATE 100%
Heat the cream with the glucose to 165-175°F (75-80°C), then combine half with the chocolate fèves and the chopped PURE PASTE. Mix well with a spatula then add the rest of the cream mixture, and mix using an immersion blender to form a perfect emulsion. Once the ganache is at 95-105°F (35-40°C), add the cubed tempered butter, which should be at approx. 65°F (18°C) and mix again. At 95-100°F (34-36°C), pour the ganache into a frame, to a height of 8mm. Leave this mixture to set until it has the perfect texture for piping.
Cocoa Nib Crisp
300g GRUE DE CACAO
5g fleur de sel
70g Muscovado sugar
In a food processor, gently mix all the ingredients together to break the nibs and fleur de sel into smaller grains. Sift the mixture to remove any powder – You should be left with lots of small pieces.
