Mango Truffles


Mango Truffles Recipe

It’s the beginning of a new year and I wanted to start off with something sweet :).... I have already tried many truffles and mango truffles was in my mind for a long time, even tried once which did not turn out as expected ....  so this Christmas I tried these again and it came out pretty well..... I used the basic recipe of Pumpkin Truffles..... The only problem was to shape the ganache to a perfect ball.... the ganache was so fragile you need to freeze them before and after shaping it..... also you have to rub your hands with powdered sugar very well.....  May be using a chocolate mould will make the whole process little more effortless; I have to try that next time..... Mango puree should be thick and I used frozen Alphonso mango puree....


Mango Truffles

Mango Truffles
Ingredients:
1/4 cup Heavy Cream 
1/2 vanilla bean or 1 tsp Vanilla essence
340gm (12 oz) White Chocolate
1/4 cup Mango Puree (I used frozen Alphonso mango puree) 
1 tbsp Rum
2 cup Powdered Sugar
340gm (12 oz.) Dark or milk chocolate(I used both)

Fruit Truffles

Method:
  • Pour 340gm (12 oz) white chocolate into a medium mixing bowl.
  • In a separate small bowl, measure out mango puree and rum. Set aside.
  • Add cream to a medium sauce pan, and scrape in vanilla.
  • Heat on medium, stirring constantly, until cream just comes to a boil.
  • Pour cream over chocolate, and whisk until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Then, while still stirring constantly, whisk in your mango puree mixture.
  • Set aside until cooled to room temperature.
  • Chill in the fridge overnight.
  • Scoop small mounds onto parchment lined baking sheets. Freeze 30 minutes.
  • Rub powdered sugar on your hands and pour the rest into a bowl. Take a mound of ganache off of the parchment paper and drop in the bowl of powdered sugar.
  • Roll it around a bit and then shape into balls and lay them on a baking sheet lined with more parchment paper. Chill in the freezer for at least 15 min.
  • Heat up dark chocolate over a double boiler. (Make sure chocolate isn't too hot or runny or your ganache won't hold together when you dip it. Make sure chocolate doesn't cool down too much either. The chocolate should be completely smooth and velvety).
  • Take out a few truffles at a time (1/3 to 1/4 of the entire batch), and dip in the chocolate and place on another sheet of parchment paper. (To dip, since these were so fragile, you can plopped them in the melted chocolate, spooned chocolate over it to cover it, scooped it up with a spoon, transferred it to a fork to let the excess chocolate run off, then transferred it back to the spoon so that I could lay it nicely on the parchment paper).
  • Refrigerate for a good 3 hours.

  9. is it necessary to roll the pre-made truffles in powdered sugar?
    Does this help keep it together or is this purely for taste?

    I ask because I'd like to leave it out.
    Thanks!
