Almond Truffles with Coconut Syrup and Tonka Bean


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2018 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com



Sinfully rich and delicious, these truffles are coated with a fine layer of toasted almonds for crunchy. A touch of tonka bean adds a more complex and interesting vanilla flavour to this sweet confection.

  • 70 g Unsalted butter, chopped
  • 70 g Coconut syrup
  • 40 ml Coconut cream
  • 150 g Almond meal
  • 1/3 tsp Tonka bean powder
  • 50 g 99% Dark chocolate, chopped
  • 50 g Almonds, chopped, toasted
  1. Place unsalted butter, coconut syrup and coconut cream in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and allow it to simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add in almond meals and tonka bean powder. Stir until combined. Now stir in chopped chocolate until melted and combined. Set aside to cool.
  3. Roll the mixture into 18-20 balls. Roll in chopped toasted almonds to coat. Refrigerate until firm and ready for use. Remove from fridge 10 minutes before serving.

@Balvinder Ubi Tonka bean is the seed of flowering tree in the pea family. You can buy the whole bean or powder on amazon.

I've been having trouble getting my comments to appear Angie - Love these little bites of deliciousness - and I'll have to look into the tonka beans!

Your truffles look delightful! Chocolate and nuts always gets my attention :) I've been reading about tonka bean as a replacement for vanilla extract which is getting more and more costly. Do you grind the beans yourself, Angie?

grace 25/6/18 20:09

someone would have to take these away from me lest i eat the whole batch!

These truffles look and sound wonderful. I love that you used tonka bean as a flavouring, I still have a couple of beans from my blogger friend Dave who visited Toronto last August.
