Original Recipe taken from: Hand-formed chocolates [videorecording] / Culinary Institute of America ; produced by Philip E. Mill; Originally produced in 2002
Ingredients: 516ml Cream 1020g Dark Chocolate 85g Butter 4 Dried Golden Orange(金橘) [which i bought from Taiwan]
Method: 1. Boil cream together with the dried golden orange (split open into half or more). when boiled, cover and let the cream absorb the orange flavor. 2. Repeat boiling the cream with orange twice or even 3 times depending on how much you would like the chocolate to carry the orange taste. 3. Strain over the finely chopped chocolate. Cover and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes. 4. Whisk gently until cream and chocolate combine (cannot see trace of the cream) 5. Add room temperature, softened butter and whisk to combine. 6. Let the mixture cool in bowl for some time. 7. Using a small size ice-cream scope or melon baller to make small balls of chocolate truffle. 8. You can coat the chocolate balls in some cocoa powder or melt/temper some chocolate and dip the truffle balls in for a hard coating (you can use dark chocolate or milk and white chocolate for a sweeter taste, which will balance the bitterness of the truffle). allow the truffles coating to solidify (if coating with melted chocolate) before storing in air tight containers. 9. Store in cool dry place or in the refrigerator (do not freeze).
