Give Me S'more Chocolate, Please?

I had some extra time to experiment with chocolate.  After making the delicious truffles last week, I could help but think of the different kinds of chocolates I wanted to learn how to make--mint and caramel being at the top of that list.  Chef gave me some mint oil and allowed me to create my own mint hand-rolled truffles.  I tempered milk chocolate and used it to coat the delicious truffle filling.  The result?  Incredible mint chocolate truffles.

For the bonbons, I brushed copper luster dust in the mold before pouring in tempered dark chocolate to create a somewhat reddish hue.  Using the salted caramel made the week before, I piped it into the molds and added more dark chocolate to seal the caramel within.  These chocolate were quite satisfying as well.

  1. I came across your blog via Hannah Terrill's and it's amazing!! I've turned to eating the only chocolate I can find in the house (chocolate chips) to try and quell my sudden onset of chocolate fever as inspired by your blog. You do such great work.
