Strawberry Blonde Truffles
A delicious beer truffle featuring: strawberry flavors, white chocolate, and peanut butter
Write a review
Print
For the filling
  1. 1 cup of strawberry blonde
  2. 16 oz of white baking chocolate
  3. 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
For the coating
  1. 8 oz of white baking chocolate
  2. 1 sprinkles topping
  3. 1 package of crushed up graham crackers
For the filling
  1. Add the beer to a pot over high heat. Reduce by half (until about a 1/2 cup is remaining), stirring frequently.
  2. Remove from heat, break the 16 oz of white chocolate into chunks, stir until smooth and melted.
  3. Add the peanut butter and stir until melted. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
  5. Use melon baller to scoop out a small amount of chocolate. Roll into a ball with your hands, add to some parchment paper and chill for 20 minutes to an hour.
To temper chocolate for the coating
  1. Chop the baking chocolate into small pieces. Add about half of it to the top of a double boiler over medium head (If you don't have a double boiler, place a metal bowl over a pot of water making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch water).
  2. Stir until the white chocolate reaches 110 degrees.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir continuously, adding a bit of the reserved white chocolate at a time until it reaches 88 degrees. Stir, stir, stir, like crazy!
  4. Take a fork and add the truffle balls to coat them
  5. Remove from white chocolate and place on parchment paper, place a few sprinkles on top.
Notes
  1. Half of the truffles you can just simply coat the truffle ball in your crushed graham crackers or you can just do all of them that way if you don't want to temper the chocolate, it's up to you!
