Add beer to your next batch of chocolate truffles with this simple and delicious recipe.
  • ½ cup (120 ml) heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp dark beer
  • 9 oz (255 g) dark chocolate
  • ½ vanilla bean
  • 1½ oz (40 g) cocoa powder
  • Optional: ¼ tsp chili powder
  1. Combine heavy cream with vanilla seeds (scrape them from vanilla bean) and put on low heat. When it almost boils, remove from heat, add chopped chocolate and stir well until it combines. Leave to cool on room temperature.
  2. Slowly add beer to the previous mixture and pour it into a square baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to cool for 3 hours in the fridge. The mixture should be firm enough to shape truffles.
  3. Take 1 tsp of the mixture and shape uneven balls (truffles). Coat them with cocoa powder and serve. You can mix cocoa powder with a bit of chili powder.
