Banoffee Chocolate Truffles Recipe
Banoffee pie is probably my favourite dessert from back home and so had to be the first chocolate truffle recipe on my blog. It contains the things I like to eat the most: chocolate, banana, biscuit and caramel. It has got to be one of the most asked for truffles that I make amongst my friends and colleagues at work. It can take a bit of time and effort to make compared to other truffle recipes but it is absolutely worth it.
So, follow my Banoffee Chocolate Truffles Recipe and give it a try for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
- 250g of Digestive Biscuits
- 1 Ripe Banana
- A Small Tin of Caramel
- 200g of Dark Chocolate
1. Firstly, we need to make some caramel sauce. Heat sugar and water in a pan until it dissolves, cooks and then turns into an amber colour. Add butter, pour in the cream and stir until it settles down. Then take it off the heat and set aside until needed. Alternatively, you can just buy a tin of caramel sauce from the shop. Check out this page for more detailed instructions on how to make caramel sauce at home.
2. Crush the digestive biscuits in a plastic bag using a hard object or just use a food processor or mortar and pestle.
3. Peel the banana and mash it into a bowl using a fork. Add the crushed biscuits and mix well until fully incorporated.
4. Gradually pour in about a quarter of the tin of caramel and mix until the whole mixture is covered. You can add more if not enough but make sure the mixture doesn’t become too wet or sticky. If this does happen you can just include some more crushed biscuits. (If you don’t have caramel try honey instead.)
5. Take small amounts of the mixture and roll in your hands into little 1 inch balls. Place them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to harden.
6. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or double boiler and temper.
7. Tip the balls into the chocolate using a fork or cocktail stick until fully coated and place in the fridge for a further 10 minutes to set.
This is where you can get creative as the toppings are completely up to you. I like to sprinkle some crushed biscuits on top before they set and then pipe caramel sauce on top. You could drizzle or pipe milk or white chocolate on top instead or completely cover in crushed peanuts. There are endless possibilities.
