Petra Stahlová whips up succulent dessert recipes that will wow even the most demanding of dinner guests

Raspberry truffles

These berry and chocolate truffles are melt-in-the-mouth bites of heaven that you’ll want to devour as soon as you’ve finished making them!

By Petra Stahlová

Makes 30 truffles | Prep 15 mins plus setting | Cook 20 mins | Calories 92 (per truffle)


1 Warm the raspberry purée and caster sugar together until it reaches 40°C/104°F.

2 Coarsely chop the chocolate, or break it into pieces, and place in a small measuring cup. Carefully melt the chocolate in a microwave until it reaches 45°C/113°F. Alternatively, place the chocolate on top of a double boiler (bain-marie) and let it melt over medium heat.

3 Blend in the warmed purée gradually, using an immersion blender. Add the coconut oil and continue blending until the ganache is smooth.

4 Pour the ganache into a bowl and wrap with clingfilm so that it is directly touching the surface. Allow it to set for about 3 hours at a temperature close to 20°C/68°F (room temperature).

5 Give the mixture a gentle stir and transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a 14mm tip. Pipe long lines of chocolate ganache onto a silicone mat or a piece of baking paper. Allow the ganache to set for several hours. Once it has set, use a hot, dry knife to cut the ganache into 3cm (1¼in) long pieces.
