Raspberry truffles

I’ve never been a great fan of pure dark chocolate, it’s hard to tell if I’ll enjoy anything with dark chocolate or not until I try it. As I really love fruit, and especially raspberries which is a great combination with chocolate, I gave this recipe a try. Unfortunately the truffles didn’t suit my taste, but Fredrik and his grand mother for whom I made the truffles were thrilled. The raspberry flavour is really nice and goes perfectly with the creamy dark chocolate, but if you don’t like dark chocolate that actually doesn’t matter :-)

    Raspberry truffles
    (makes about 45 truffles. Source: Dansukker)

    250 g dark chocolate (I used 125 gr of 70% chocolate and 125 gr of 55% chocolate)
    125 g raspberries
    50 ml concentrated raspberry syrup
    100 ml whipping/double cream
    3 tbsp caster sugar

    tiny paper cups
    Pink sprinkles for decoration (I used Strawberry scented ones)

    Finely chop the chocolate. Mix raspberries, syrup, cream and sugar in a saucepan and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Strain the mixture and let it boil without a lid until 50 ml of liquid remains. Add the chocolate pieces and stir until the chocolate has melted. Take the saucepan off the heat and let it cool for a while. Pour the chocolate into tiny paper cups, I piped it using a pastry bag. If you want you can sprinkle some pink sprinkles on the truffles.
