For the second day of our chocolate challenge, we stopped at Briggs Maples in Riverview. We met David there, a very friendly guy, who told us everything about the maple syrup & other maple products he makes. Maple syrup is so delicious and you can easily use it to replace sugar in your cooking with benefits. Did you know that you need 40 gallons of sap to make only 1 gallon of maple syrup? So we’ll better make a good use of it 😉
Maple syrup truffles
- 100 grams cream 35%
- 75 grams maple syrup
- 50 grams soft butter
- 350 grams dark chocolate 70% for the ganache
- 300 grams dark chocolate 70% to cover the balls
- 150 grams maple sugar
In a pan, boil the cream and maple syrup. Pour it on the dark chocolate and stir for one minute. Then add the soft butter and stir it again until the mixture is homogeneous. Pour on a cooking pan covered with parchment paper and refrigerate for two hours. Cut equal small squares and make some balls with them. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Temper the chocolate. Dip the balls into the tempered chocolate and immediately roll them in a bowl filled with maple sugar.
