Liquor Ganache Filling:

  • 300 g Heavy Cream (35% fat)
  • 135 g Glucose Syrup
  • 400 g Dark Chocolate (60% cocoa solids)
  • 100 g Texas whiskey or bourbon
  • 60 g Unsalted Butter (softened)

For the Chocolate Shells:

  • 500 g Dark Chocolate (tempered for shells)

Chocolate Truffle Coating:

  • 300 g Dark Chocolate (tempered)
  • 100 g Cocoa Powder (for dusting)


1. Prepare the Chocolate Shells:

  • Begin by tempering 500 g of dark chocolate using the seeding method, maintaining a working temperature of about 31 to 32°C.
  • Fill the truffle molds with the tempered chocolate, creating shells with a hollow center. Tap gently to remove air bubbles and excess chocolate.
  • Allow the chocolate to set until it's fully crystallized, creating the perfect base for our truffles.

2. Make the Liquor Ganache:

  • Heat the heavy cream and glucose syrup until just below a simmer in a pot.
  • Finely chop 400 g of dark chocolate and place it in a bowl.
  • Pour the warm cream mixture over the chocolate, stir until smooth, and let it sit for a minute to melt completely.
  • Add the Texas whiskey once the ganache cools to about 40°C and blend thoroughly.
  • Incorporate the softened butter for a velvety texture. Adjust the consistency by letting it set at room temperature if needed.

3. Fill the Chocolate Shells:

  • Pipe the ganache into the set chocolate shells using a piping bag, leaving room for sealing the bottoms.
  • Let the ganache set inside the shells at room temperature or speed up the process by chilling in the fridge momentarily.

4. Seal the Truffles:

  • Re-temper some dark chocolate and spread over the filled truffle molds to seal the bottoms.
  • Scrape off any excess chocolate and allow the seal to set, ensuring a flawless finish.

5. Unmold and Finish:

  • Carefully remove the truffles from the molds once fully set.
  • Dip each truffle in tempered dark chocolate and finish by rolling them in cocoa powder for that classic touch.

6. Set and Serve:

  • Allow the truffles to set at 18°C with a humidity of about 60% before serving, ensuring the perfect texture and taste profile.

Note: Maintain the recommended aW (water activity) for the ganache to guarantee shelf stability. Invest in high-quality chocolate with a balanced flavor profile for the best results. For any scaling needs, just provide the desired quantity, and we'll do the math to ensure perfection.
