Chocolate and stout…that’s what love is about!

TrufFultons

As a nod to our North Loop neighbor, Fulton Brewery, we chose their Worthy Adversary Stout for this recipe.


Chocolate Stout Truffles

Ingredients:

Creamy Centers

1/4 cup Nutella spread
6 oz. milk chocolate, coarsely chopped

 

Truffle Filling

1 1/2 cups (1 bottle) Fulton Worthy Adversary Stout beer
12 oz. good quality chocolate (60% cocoa content), chopped

 

Coating

8 oz. good quality chocolate (from a shiny bar, this means it has previously been tempered) can be milk, dark or white chocolate

Directions:

Creamy Centers

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat milk chocolate and Nutella in microwave for 30 seconds or until just melted. Stir until completely combined. With a teaspon portion 36 1/2” dollops on parchment. Leave in the freezer for 1 hour, until frozen.

 

Truffle Filling

Add the beer to a pot over high heat. Reduce by half (about 3/4 cup remaining), stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and add the chocolate. Stir until smooth and melted.
Allow to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
Use a melon baller to scoop out a small amount of chocolate. Remove centers from freezer. Sandwich one dollop in the middle of the truffle mixture and roll into a ball with your hands. Chill for 20 minutes to an hour.
