World architecture day: the chocolate house

um projecto de chocolate

This is my project…

Baileys and white chocolate truffles:

Makes 36 (12 g each):

60 g baileys
80 g cream
300 g white chocolate, chopped
50 g Cocoa

Place the chocolate in a bowl.
Bring the cream to boil with the baileys and pour over the chocolate stirring constantly.
The ganache must be smooth and shiny.
Cover the bowl with wrap film and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight).
Put the cocoa on a plate.
Make small balls with the truffle mixture and gently roll each truffle in the cocoa to coat.
Refrigerate for 1 hour at least before serving.

To make the house, I’ve used tempered dark chocolate sprinkled with powdered cocoa.

    Leonor, I’m a fan of your blog for a long time, but strangely this is my first comment. Everything here is so beautifuly presented and photographed. You are surely an artist in the kitchen.
    When do you put Bailey’s into the truffles? You did not mention it in the recipe.

    Thank you for your comment! I’ve just corrected the recipe…

    I’ve looked at your blog but unfortunately I can’t read a single word despite all those beautiful images…
