Strawberry Wafer Dream Truffle Chocolates
Serving size: 12
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Freeze time: 10 minutes
FREE OF: gluten, dairy, soy, coconut, nuts, banana, seeds, lime, egg, animal products
4oz block of Bakers semi sweet chocolate (if you're a messy cook, maybe get 2 just in case)
Columbia gluten free strawberry wafers (2 wafers)
Silicone Chocolate molds
Break up the chocolate into pieces and melt
Use a small spoon or silicone spatula to scoop a small amount of chocolate into the chocolate mold, just enough to fill the bottom
Gently squeeze the mold so that the chocolate spreads around the sides and covers pretty much the whole mold repeat with all the molds
Put into freezer to harden 5 minutes
Chop up about 2 strawberries in small pieces
Take the wafers and a butter knife, swipe some marshmallow fluff along the top and stick the strawberries on top
Take the molds out of the freezer
Cut the wafer creation with a sharp knife in small enough pieces for them to fit into the mold center
Place the little pieces into the middle of the mold strawberry side face down from you
Cover the top with more chocolate and put in freezer for quickest hardening results for about 5 minutes
Pop them out of the mold carefully and serve!
We highly recommend you get silicone molds because its significantly easier to manipulate and to take them out. If you're worried about the cost, you don't need to be. You can get one mold at Walmart, Joann's Fabrics, or Michael's for anywhere between $1-$5. You can also order them pretty cheap on Amazon.
Story behind the recipe:
Chocolate truffles are just about the best thing you can have for Valentine's day or any romantic occasion. It's pretty difficult to find vegan and gluten free ones and if you do, they're generally very pricey. There's so many recipes out there for different kinds of truffles, but this one is definitely one you won't see anywhere and it's pretty easy.
These truffles have a nice crunch to them, but still have a juicy layer as well. If you let them sit for a day the strawberry and marshmallow mixture becomes kind of like a cordial cherry texture to them. Sweet, syrupy, and flavorful strawberry.
With chocolate molds you and a unique filling you are sure to impress whoever you give theses tasty morsels to. Pair with a dessert wine or your choice of hard liquor. Have a romantic evening!
