No other food says love more than strawberries and cream. They are a perfect match and if they were covered in chocolate – what more can I say?
I know it will be hard to give these away but they do make lovely gifts. Box them up as a pressie or use them for wedding bomboniere, party favors or just to say thank you.
I came up with these while thinking of small but luxurous wedding bomboniere ideas. I thought instead of just rolling them in balls why not make love hearts. If you want to make these in advance I suggest you make the ganache and freeze it as cut out shapes or in balls. It can be frozen for up to six weeks. Then all you have to do is defrost them and coat them in chocolate.
These truffles take a bit more effort than a plain chocolate truffle but they really are worth it. The strawberry puree with the cream and chocolate makes them taste so creamy and a bit like a strawberry milkshake.
If you’ve made truffles before you’ll know that they are soft to work with. This where your freezer will be your best friend. Freezing the ganache slightly before cutting them out makes them much easier to handle. If they get a bit messed up when pushing them out of the cutter, you can gently reshape and smooth them with your fingers.
