Chocolate covered almond truffles


  • 1 Perfect Spoonful of Chocolate Covered Almond tea
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate drops
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup roasted, salted almonds, chopped or coarsely ground


Step 1
Soak tea in hot water for 1 minute, then set aside.
Step 2
Bring cream and butter to a soft boil in a saucepan and mix in soak tea leaves. Take off heat and steep for 5 minutes, covered.
Step 3
Meanwhile, chop the chocolate drops with a knife or in a food processor, and transfer to a heatproof bowl. Strain heavy cream mixture onto the chocolate, pressing on solids to release as much liquid as possible. Whisk until smooth to make a ganache. Cover and chill until firm – about 2 hours.
Step 4
Spoon level teaspoons of ganache onto a baking sheet.
Step 5
Place cocoa and chopped almonds into a bowl and dust your palms lightly with the mixture. Roll each piece of ganache into a ball, then drop into bowl to evenly coat with cocoa and almond mixture. Transfer to an airtight container, being sure to separate layers with wax paper to avoid clumping.
Step 6
Makes about 24 truffles.
