Raspberry Truffles


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 6.5 oz good quality chocolate
  • 1/2 cup raspberry puree (see below for recipe)
  • 1 oz (2 tablespoons) vegetable oil
  • cocoa powder for dusting

Raspberry puree

  • 12 oz raspberries, fresh or frozen (defrosted if frozen)


Finely chop the chocolate and place it in a heat proof bowl. Combine the raspberry puree and oil and heat it until almost boiling. (This can be done in the microwave or in a small pan on the stove. Stir frequently if using the stove) Pour the hot puree over the chocolate and let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk or stir gently until completely combined and smooth. If some chocolate remains un-melted microwave the mixture in 10 second intervals, stirring well each time, until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture into a shallow bowl or pan and refrigerate until firm, at least one hour.

Using a small scoop or spoon roll small balls of the chilled ganache. Coat the balls in cocoa powder and serve at room temperature. Store any leftover in the refrigerator. Let come to room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

Raspberry Puree

Blend raspberries in a food processor or blender until pureed. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, using a spoon to press as much of the puree through as possible. Discard solids.

There may be more puree than needed for this recipe, save the rest for another use.
