White chocolates with salted caramel

White chocolates with salted caramel

dessert recipes |

The key to a beautiful finish is a well polished mould. 500g of white chocolate will make one set of filled truffles using a 3.1 x 3.1cm mould.

1. Pour the chocolate all over the mould. Using the pallet knife, spread it out and tap the sides to remove any air bubbles.
2. Upturn the mould to get rid of excess chocolate, tapping the side to help it. Scrape off the excess and allow to set.
3. Pour the caramel into a piping bag and fill each mould three-quarters full. Sprinkle a few sea salt flakes on each one and chill for 5-10 minutes (in the meantime, keep your chocolate at the right temperature over the bain-marie).
4. Spoon over more chocolate to cover, scrape off the excess and return to the fridge for at least another hour.
5. Turn the mould upside down and tap one corner to release the chocolates. Dust with gold lustre for sparkle.
