When I was home in Sweden last (in October) I found a few old folders with recipe clippings that I’ve found over the years. I decided to go through them all and only save the really good ones. This was a recipe that made the cut, but I have no idea where it is from. Lovely truffles, but I would like an even stronger muscovado taste. Might experiment with that last year. Can’t believe it is already a week into December, so this year I definitely won’t have time.
Muscovado truffles, makes 20-25
200 g dark chocolate
100 ml double cream
25 g butter
3 tbsp dark muscovado sugar
2 tbsp light muscovado sugar
75 g dark chocolate
Chop the chocolate. Combine cream and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, add the chocolate and stir until smooth. Add the butter and stir until smooth and glossy. Put the mixture in the fridge to cool down. Roll into small balls, dip in melted dark chocolate and let dry on parchment paper. Add the snowflakes before the chocolate sets.
